I found a fix related to xulrunner 2.0. It's for ubuntu 11.04, but works in Arch too.

i stopped using firefox(4) and switched to opera

not working, because firefox 4 uses xulruner 2.0

Same problem here. Could you tell me which xulrunner package you installed to get it working again?

does rssowl conflict with the new xulrunner version?
since the firefox(4) update (including xulrunner) i'm not able to start rssowl.
if i install a previous version of xulrunner, rssowl is working properly.

/usr/bin/rssowl ignores command line args.
If you change the PKGBUILD to add \$@ then args are passed to the rssowl binary and processed properly

echo -e "#!/bin/bash\n\n/usr/share/$pkgname/RSSOwl \$@" >$pkgdir/usr/bin/$pkgname

An optional dependency for the internal "browser" is to add the "xulrunner" package. I could not get anything to render the feeds until I installed that.
