Fix RSS bookmarks with no count in Safari Web Browsers
I was having a problem with the RSS feed for a bookmark in Safari. It was in a folder in my Bookmarks Bar. Whenever the feed was updated, the folder got a number, but the feed's bookmark in the pop down did not, making me wonder just which feed the update came from.

I fixed it by changing the RSS feed URL from:

feed://http://www.pimpmysafari.com/atom/ to

feed://www.pimpmysafari.com/atom/.

That is, I removed the http:// part from the URL. Now the number correctly appears next that feed just like all the other ones do.

This worked for Safari and Geektool.

Fix RSS bookmarks with no count in Safari

feed://http://www... is clearly wrong; I don't know how it got there. When I add a feed as a bookmark it's added correctly as feed://www...

However, I recently filed a bugreport, as I often got wrong unread count numbers in my bookmark bar. This happens when the feed is still updating while I'm already displaying it.So it will still show unread articles, even if all are read. It's correct again once there's a new article available.

Beware: if this happens and you change the URL of the feed, Safari will crash ;-)

Probably I entered it manually a long time ago, and just now noticed that it was doing that now that the site has resurrected itself from the dead.
