Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

Fresh install of Lucid. Using a proxy but doubt that matters.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Go to
2. Click on the "subscribe to this page..." button at the far right of the address bar (left of favourite star/the arrow to open the dropdown)
3. Choose "Subscribe to 'Groklaw RSS'..."

Rather than sending you to or even as expected (the links at the bottom of the page) it has send me to feed://http//

Bit odd how it also gives the name of the rss feed yet sends you to a (broken) form of the rdf one...

Hi Joseph,

We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to review all reported bugs in a timely manner. You reported this bug in 2012. There have been many changes in Ubuntu and Firefox since that time.

We'd like to close this bug report due to its age and long period of inactivity. I've tested the links on the page that you referred to and they appear to work correctly using Ubuntu 18.04 and Firefox 61.

This bug report is set to expire in approximately 60 days time so please let us know if you still see any related problems.

Thank you for helping make Ubuntu better.
