Same on firefox.

If you enable "Microsoft (partial)", then you can not read blogs, such as:

https://blogs.msdn.com/ie/rss.xml

or

MB, can you take a look and let me know if you think you've fixed this in git?

Replying to pde:

Could have done, I've never observed the original problem. Looking at the example now, it looks exactly the same with or without the ruleset enabled.

Easy way to replicate on Firefox is using Brief @ http://brief.mozdev.org/ and attempting to add the RSS feeds.

With HTTPS Everywhere enabled for MSDN they will fail. Disable MSDN entry in HTTPS Everywhere and it is successful.

war59312, are you talking about installing the brief extension? I worry that that might trigger instances of bug #3190 too.

Hi,

Indeed, you are correct, sorry did not know about that issue.

But both issues still apply today, that was just a quick method to duplicate this issue with msdn.

It still applies even without using brief.

Thanks,

Will

Okay, it looks like this is actually an instance of #5585. I'm marking this as a duplicate for now, but please reopen if #5585 is fixed but this persists.
