RSS stopped working in Safari...help?

Does anyone havve any ideas why my RSS feeds have stopped working? Up until a few days ago all was well and now they do not update. I've not done anything to my mac so I cann't think of any reason why they would stop working. any suggestions would be great.

I'm having the same trouble, only on my intel iMac.

I have a button in my bookmark bar, called RSS. It has about 10 RSS feeds inside it, which should all display at the same time when you click on it.

It'll show new stories (e.g. RSS (17) ) but when I click on it doesn't update. I have to choose individual feeds to get the news.

Works fine on my PowerBook (synced on .Mac).

I am experiencing the exact same problem! I'm as baffled by it as you guys are. The weird thing is that I have two user accounts - one of them works normally, the other one doesn't. It just so happens that the one that doesn't work is my day-to-day account

Assume you've tried quitting Safari and relaunching it? Sometimes I find that seems to work if I've had a few days without it working

Yup, I've done that several times. It doesn't seem to help. I can't force a manual update of all RSS feeds either because Safari doesn't offer an option to do that in case the automatic update doesn't update.

I haven't tried:

-Resetting Safari
-Deleting Safari's preferences
-Disabling applications that are different between the two accounts

The only "fix" i found for this was making a new user account! I was forced to by a different set of circumstances, but now RSS seems to work fine...

How about we take an inventory?

For each of you:

1. What version(s) of OS X are you using?
2. PowerPC or Intel?
3. What extensions and/or applications have you installed/modified recently?
4. Which feeds do you get?

At least we can eliminate something simple.

Mac OS X 10.4.7, PowerPC

I've installed a whole bunch of applications recently, though I can eliminate every single one because the problem existed before I installed any of them. In fact, it started when I did a .Mac Sync after doing a total reinstall of Mac OS X.

Feeds I get:

Apple Hot News
Apple Press Releases
Apple Developer Connection
Coldfront (Kingdom of Loathing)
MacRumors - Page 1
MacRumors - Page 2
MacRumors - Forums
Slashdot - Main Page
Slashdot - Apple
Slashdot - Developers
Slashdot - Games
Slashdot - Hardware
Slashdot - Information Technology (IT)
Slashdot - Science
