What version of Xoops?
Do you know what version of PHP and MySQL?
Has it ever worked? What did you do between the time it worked and now? (Like an upgrade or installed a hack or a new module, that sort of thing)
Does it happen to everyone? or only a few people?

It could be a number of things, but the answers to the above should help determine what the issue is....

It could also be a DataBase issue. Depending on the load, the DB could be bogging things down. I've had that happen to me a couple of times.

Useless my arse.
Did you check the admin area of the headlines module? In it are SEVERAL options that controls how it looks. One of those options is to Display (or not) in Full View (I think the default has this turned off). Try turning it on.... see what happens.
The module does work, I've got several feeds running on mine, and in fact I even run my own feeds back to me! http://www.developerkb.com/modules/xoopsheadline/
It's far from useless. Now, maybe the problem is the RSS feed you are trying to display. I don't know.

AAUUGGHH!
That is actually a horrible thing to do. Those settings will keep the session object open for 9999 minutes! Which means that as more users visit the site, you will experience performance degredation as the server attempts to manage all of the sessions (none of it is done on the client).
BTW: 9999 minutes is 166.65 hours, or nearly 7 days.
There are a few hacks out there to do auto-login and such.

Well, as far as I know the RSS runs through the HTTP port. HOWEVER, there is a little known fact that the XML that is generated is not fully formed XML... it's got some flaws in it. What it is, I don't rightly know. A couple of tags are not supported I think. Are you trying to recieve an RSS feed, or use the backend.php RSS news feed to feed to another site?

When you modified the mainfile.php, did you also remember to change the XOOPS URL that's defined in there? That too will cause problems. I've accidently done that to myeself a couple of times doing the same thing you are.

Maybe this is something some one can look into for the next version of the forums. The ability to select the icons from the admin screen, or possibly allow them to be theme driven.

backend.php is a part of the basic XOOPS install. and by default it uses code to get the website URL, so there's no need to do anything. Just run it.
As a side note, I have modified backend.php that allows three different types of feeds. 1)Last 10 news items, 2) last 10 items added to wfSection, and 3) Last 5 news items and last 5 wfSection articles.
Visit my site, DeveloperKB.com to see it in action.

Has any of this been checked for cross browser capabilities? Will this work in IE, AND Mozilla, AND NS?
What has it been tried on?
