Description

Environment

Firefox 28 with just Adblock Plus 2.5.1 and EasyPrivacy+EasyList.

Observed behavior

When I click Firefox's Feed button on one of the report pages, e.g.
https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/358#comment:1

I just get taken to
https://issues.adblockplus.org

Expected behavior

I should get a preview of a feed; that's the specified action for web feeds under Options - Applications - Web Feed.

The RSS link seems indeed broken. It points to https://issues.adblockplus.org/login?referer=%2Fticket%2F358%3Fformat%3Drss rather than directly to https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/358?format=rss which means that reading the RSS feed requires you to be logged in. This behavior was introduced in http://trac.edgewall.org/ticket/540 and the direct RSS link is apparently only being displayed to anonymous users, regardless of permissions.

The other (and apparently unrelated) issue is that the login page loses the format parameter when redirecting already logged in users.
