    I recently updated to 2.5 and my RSS feed has stopped working in Firefox. I have tested on Safari and it works fine but on FireFox (OSX) I get error:
    XML Parsing Error: xml declaration not at start of external entity
    Location: http://www.youworkforthem.com/blog/?feed=rss2
    Line Number 2, Column 1:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    ^
    Can bee seen here: http://www.youworkforthem.com/blog/?feed=rss2

    Anyone else seen this, have any ideas? I have only tested on OSX Firefox and Safari.

    Something is printing an extra blank line at the beginning of your RSS feed. This problem is usually caused by an errant plugin (or sometimes a theme file), so try deactivating your plugins one-by-one until the problem goes away. (And while you're doing that, keep in mind that Firefox caches the feeds with an iron grip, so you'll probably need to clear the cache to see any changes.)

    Do I have the same problem. I can't get my RSS to work either. Could you please help me to see what might be the problem. I will go thru all my plugins to and deactivate them one by one and see which one is not compatible.

    i'm having the same problem across the board. plugins won't deactivate, so the problem won't go away.

    any ideas?

    Using Inove

    My rss links work fine in Safari but acts strangely in Firefox.
    When clicked in firefox OSX, the result keeps opening tabs until I stop it.

    @ahundredavatars
    Ftp to your site and delete or rename the plugin. make a backup by downloading them first.
