    In linux mint 8 rssowl worked well.

    In linux mint 12 rssowl adds to each url =/home/en/ therefore browser can not
    display any url from rssowl. Is there a way to get rod if this prefix? Thanks
    in advance.

    Very strange. Looks like a localisation Bug in Mint. I am using Ubuntu 11.10
    on which Mint 12 is heavily based and have no such problems…

    Did it work on Mint 12 before?

    It worked well on mint 8 for 2 years and also on mint 9. Never worked for me
    on lint 12.

    I tried on mint 12 both under gnome and xfce, the same erroneous behaviour.
    Other applications work well and communicate well, for example kmail works
    well with konqueror.

    I tried rssowl, it works well with konqueror and also with the own browser,
    the error only comes in combination with mozilla firefox browser, version

    Why Firefox 7 ? It is unmaintained/unsupported. You really should upgrade.
    (Ok, that's part of Ubuntu's/Mint's "update strategy" – "do never update
    Software between releases" – thats irresponsible if you ask me)

    Can you update Firefox anyway? There is a Launchpad PPA for Ubuntu (Oneiric)
    providing Firefox unstable, but I don't know any repo providing Firefox

    I don't know if it works for Mint. According to comments in http://community.
    it should work running

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    (as always: no warranty, you might brick your system)

    I do not think, that Firefox 7.0.1 has any problem since it works well with
    kmail, and links from kmail are shown properly without any prefixes. Also the
    fact, that mint distribution included it shows, that it works properly with
