Thunderbird rss not updating
Like the Firefox browser, Thunderbird can be used to access websites that make content available through RSS feeds.
Unlike Firefox, however, which gives you access to RSS feeds through Live Bookmarks, Thunderbird lets you view RSS content in a way that is very similar to reading email: the RSS feeds that you subscribe to will be listed in the folders pane, the individual article titles or "headlines" will be displayed in the message-list pane, and when you click on a title the article content will be displayed in the message preview pane.
Once you've brought up the "RSS Subscriptions" dialog, all you need to do to subscribe to an RSS feed is click the "Add" button, enter the URL for the feed into the box, and click "OK" (screenshot).
The links work and even creating a new live bookmark on the page fails to load.If I can be of further assistance please let me know.Read this answer in context After "upgrading" to Firefox Quantum most of my RSS feeds/live bookmarks fail to update.Note: if the option to create an RSS account does not even appear, it is probably because you chose a "Custom" (rather than "Standard") install of Thunderbird, and you did not select to include RSS Support in your installation.
In that case, you should uninstall Thunderbird and reinstall it, making sure to include the RSS option this time.
The Grab My Books add-on for Firefox supports saving content from web sites and feeds into an e Pub or mobi (kindle) file for your e Book reader.
