when you click the blog rss feed buttons half the time you get taken to the page you see below.

Also I was helping a user and it seems the standard blog button has a target="_blank" tag attached. why?

Hi guys,

I have some feedback on this particular problem - it seems to be a browser issue (particularly Firefox) and we will continue to monitor and investigate.

I'm going to use Will's blog as an example to explain what goes wrong. When you click on a blog RSS feed, you'll see that the URL in the browser starts with "feed://" instead of "http://". On Will's blog (, when you click on the RSS feed the first time, it is feed://

In Firefox, it disregards "feed://" after clicking on it once and converts it to a normal URL. This means that the page will display in an XML format and not a nice RSS feed page. It doesn't mean it's broken, it just appears a bit differently.
