RSS button in toolbar is affected by both the top level web page and pages in

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open browser
1' look for the toolbar at the bottom of the screen (if it isn't present, use
app menu>view>show toolbar>normal screen/full screen - depending on whether app
menu>view>full screen is checked)
2. load about:
2' verify it says microb (if it doesn't use app menu>set engine>microb, and

3. load http://browser.garage.maemo.org/news/
3' note the rss icon in the toolbar
4. tap the rss

inner documents
3. I'm uncertain whether inner RSS references should be mentioned at all, but
if they should, there should be some clear indication that they're from

But downloading the news/ page without the news.html page results in the normal
behavior. Downloading news.html next to news/index.html causes the problem to

This has been fixed in package
which is part of the internal build version
(Note: 2009 is the year, and the number after is the week.)

A future public update released with the year/week later than this internal
build version will include the fix. (This is not always already the next public
Please verify that this new version fixes the bug by marking this bug report as
VERIFIED after the public update has been released and if you have some time.

To answer popular followup questions:
 * Nokia does not announce release dates of public updates in advance.
 * There is currently no access to these internal, non-public build versions.

Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).

Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
