Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

I can't add feeds using an external program unless xulrunner-1.9-gnome-
support is installed.

Using ubuntu 8.04.1

I get the following error in the error console twice:

Error: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80570016 (NS_ERROR_XPC_GS_RETURNED_FAILURE) [nsIJSCID.getService]"  nsresult: "0x80570016 (NS_ERROR_XPC_GS_RETURNED_FAILURE)"  location: "JS frame :: file:///usr/lib/firefox-3.0.1/components/FeedConverter.js :: FRS_addToClientReader :: line 415"  data: no]
Source File: file:///usr/lib/firefox-3.0.1/components/FeedConverter.js
Line: 415

Installing xulrunner-1.9-gnome-support (or firefox-gnome-support which
depends on it) fixes the problem.

Steps to reproduce
Ensure xulrunner-1.9-gnome-support is not installed
Open firefox
Navigate to a feed (e.g. http://newsrss.bbc.co.uk/rss/newsonline_uk_edition/front_page/rss.xml )
Subscribe to this feed using "Choose Application"
Choose a feed reading application (e.g. /usr/bin/liferea-add-feed if you have liferea installed)
Click "Subscribe Now"
The feed is not added to the feed reading program.

Note: I can run liferea-add-feed fine from the command line.
