I'm trying to subscribe to an Apple RSS feed.

Thunderbird keeps telling me that Apple RSS feed URLs are invalid.

For example, I can't subscribe to feed://images.apple.com/main/rss/hotnews/hotnews.rss

Can I fix this problem, or is it just a problem with Apple's feeds?

Try using http://images.apple.com/main/rss/hotnews/hotnews.rss instead of feed://images.apple.com/main/rss/hotnews/hotnews.rss.

Thanks, that does work. I thought I had tried that already, but I guess not! Thank you –  Hope4You Jul 23 '12 at 19:05
