$ GET -e "http://rss.sciencedirect.com/getMessage?registrationId=AEHGAFHGBKHHIEIICEHNAJIPALHLFMQLIWJODELNGK"

Indeed, it's empty.

Maybe the server requires some sort of cookie from you in order to
send content.

This is still a bug in liferea, an empty response should not even be
given to the parser, but it seems to me this is a fringe case and if
solving it is too much trouble maybe it should just be left be.

Hi all,

Just for the record, I circumvented the problem of empty feeds by writing a small script that runs wget feed.rss at startup. My liferea points to the newly fetched, nonempty rss feeds. I couldn't get the cookie-file working.
