Since a few days, feeds registered in Thunderbird that are hosted on feedburner are not retrieved properly anymore. When looking at the thunderbird devtools, I see that a 403 response is returned.
Reproducing the same request with curl, I also got a 403 response. I then managed to get the actual content when removing the "Sec-Fetch-Site: cross-site" header that is part of the Thunderbird request.
It would be great to unblock such requests so that feedburner feeds work in Thunderbird.

Has there been an update since then that I missed? I am still seeing this error. Here's a sample exchange:
