Just tried RSSOwl2 for first time - very impressive. :)
When clicking on a news item, the preview window shows the IE-generated (?) message "This program cannot display the webpage" 99% of the time. Very occasionally the news item is displayed correctly in the preview window, but clicking away and returning to the same news item causes the error message. If I hit F5 (Refresh) repeatedly, the news item preview usually / eventually appears.
Windows XP Pro (all latest updates), IE7, JRE6
Yeap! Likewise. Tried installation on two different W2K machines. No matter what, i get the same message "No more handles [Could not detect registered XULRunner to use]", and in NO case have I managed to get the internal browser to show anything.
Tried both Java v5 and v6
RSSOwl 2.0 Preview
Build id: Milestone 5a (2007-03-25)
On the other hand, an installation on WinXP SP2, worked like charm.
Right click into the internal broswer window.
From properties, fetch URL. Should be something like:
This got me rolling. Never thought it could be a firewall - IE settings,
as I thought I had them all figured out.
Noticed port 8795, and played around with various firewall settings.
Although I didnt find an obvious conflict, a mere higher priority in the rule, seems to ended the access bottleneck.
Also for the shake of proper logging, I also note the following:
Tried the following URL in Opera (see above)...works!
Tried it in IE...fails !!!
Hope somebody else also benefits from all these.
and installed xulrunner on w2k as taken from here
on machine 1, also a proxy server, java v6, same problem, internal browser fails to displaying news contents. But, this time NO error message "!MESSAGE No more handles [Could not detect registered XULRunner to use]", from View Error Log.
on machine 2, java 5, connects via proxy to machine1, fails even to connecto to
proxy server (as before).
Problem cannot connext to SOCKS proxy:Connection refused:Connect
Still proxies seem to work fine with other applications.
P.S. Error log shows "No more handles [Could not detect registered XULRunner to use]" when I click on first feed at start up, but no error messages as I click news items.
Weird. The error log message is a expected one and not related. Could you please open a bug report at dev.rssowl.org about this issue so that we can further discuss.
