    I am running:

    RSSOwl

    Version: 2.1.2

    Build Id: 2011-08-13

    on Solaris 10 10/08 s10s_u6wos_07b SPARC and RSSOwl crashes every time I try
    to open the following link:

    http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2012/03/the-end-of-
    pagination.html

    but in general, it seems to crash on any page with embedded flash.

    Hi

    Is a logfile entry generated? See rssowl.org/help#item_5 for getting log file.

    I can't see any flash content on this site…

    RSSOwl is using XULRunner 1.9.2 which is using Flash player (if installed). If
    there is a bug related to Flash, it is a bug in XULRunner. Since 1.9.2 is
    outdated, it very likely won't get fixed. A possible solution would be to
    disable Flash Player and/or JavaScript for XULRunner. Do you need them?
