RSS portlet fails on some apparently valid feeds

    Details

      Description

      Reproduction steps:

      1.) Use a vanilla Sp15. Start the portal and create a site and a page.
      2.) Drop an RSS portlet on the page.

      Configure these two feeds :
      http://www.lemonde.fr/rss/une.xml
      http://www.jeuneafrique.com/feed

      Result: The first one works perfectly (as well as most feeds I have used until now), but the second one fails with
      http://www.jeuneafrique.com/feed cannot be found.

      Some websites expect a user-agent string in the request, otherwise they won't serve the RSS feed and return a 403 error instead.

      Remark: In this case, the user-agent is included in the request but the failing URL does not accept the version (IE6). You can reproduce it with a dev tool (e.g. User Agent Switcher for Chrome) by switching to IE6. Newer user-agents work.
