Issue with feed for Google toolbar in protected mode RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    I observed, the feed for custom buttons delivers too many identical files that are stored in

    H:\Users\Wolfgang\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low\Content.IE5\805ZFJTZ

    folder. The files stored have this designation:

    topbuttons[1].xml (example)

    Up to 58 identical files are stored in 1 minute!!!!

    So, only one of the cache folders grew up to

    3.11 GB

    in 18 days and contains 317,040 files. Deleting all would take some hours on a 3 GB machine!

    The XML files contain this code:

    - <feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" xmlns:gtb="http://toolbar.google.com/custombuttons/">

    In my opinion, there is a significant bug in IE software. Maybe, when the feed request arrives, it checks the cached files but cannot find that file in protected mode. Therefore, within one second it downloads the same feed file again and continues doing so as long as the browser is running.

    Kind regards to all,

    How do you get a feed with that?   FWIW when I tried it redirected to here which doesn't have a Feed button or link (e.g. as seen by the Command bar Feed button).

    http://www.google.com/gadgets/directory?synd=toolbar&frontpage=1

    Does whatever you are doing require the Google Toolbar?   Perhaps that will make requests for the others no longer appear as 404 responses?   ; }

  • I had installed the Google toolbar and the files where downloaded automatically. I did not use any feed myself.
