I'm using RSSOwl 2.1.4, and Firefox 14.0.1 portable under Sandboxie.
Everything is superb with RSSOwl except a maddening problem: when I import a
new feed, and close RSSOwl, when I re-open it, the new feed is not there. But
when I do it a second time, close RSSOwl and re-open, the second time the need
feed is listed. This is driving me nuts, as you can imagine. Is it because I'm
running Firefox under Sandboxie? But if that were the problem, why does the
feed show up when I import it a second time? Please help, as this problem is
making it very difficult to populate RSSOwl with new feeds. Thanks.
Can you find out if RSSOwl is running in this sandbox? Is RSSOwl being started
from Firefox or did it run before? Do you add those feeds to RSSOwl by copying
the URL or clicking on those RSS icons?
Can you please export the log file (
http://www.rssowl.org/help#item_5 ) and
paste it somewhere or send it to me via PM ?
If RSSOwl is started from a sandboxed Firefox it is very likely that RSSOwl is
running in this sandbox too. If that is the case, RSSOwl can not write
anything to disk and thus must "forget" that you added a feed.
You are correct. I didn't notice it, but when RSSOwl is not running and I
invoke the add new feed by clicking on a feed icon, RSSOwl does start
sandboxed, which would explain why nothing is saved. I then did a test,
starting RSSOwl first, not sandboxed, and invoked the add feed via the icon,
and the new feed was there when I opened RSSOwl back up.
As you requested, I sent you the log file by PM.
I am not 100% sure, as I will need to import more feeds, but it looks like my
problem is solved -- I will make sure RSSOwl is already running before
importing a new feed.
THANKS for your great help!
Ok, I got your logs, thanks!
There are no errors until yesterday so it seems like RSSOwl your Sandbox
causes the problem.
