RSSOwl crashes when I use embedded browser
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:52 EST
Description of problem:
When I click on a link to use the embedded browser, rssowl crashes with the
INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: No manager for initializing factory?
System error?:: Success
This seems like an SWT/RCP bug, but I'll file it against rssowl for now.

Andrew - do you have any clue here? Thanks!
I haven't seen this. I'm running:

But on one machine you're using an FC6 swt and a rawhide rssowl, and on the
other machine you're using an FC6 rssowl and a rawhide swt. The problem I'm
having is with pure FC6 rssowl/swt. Is it possible for you to test that? Thanks!

Thanks. What about firefox? This is what I'm using...
It seems to crash whenever it finishes rendering certain pages, like slashdot.
I have no problem with links off of planet classpath, for instance. Try
grabbing the slashdot rss feed and opening one of the articles in the embedded
browser. Didn't we have problems before with slashdot pages. I think it had
something to do with user profiles in the browser, or something like that.
I'm on the same firefox. I use slashdot as the test case due to the historical
profile problems :) . It works fine.
Do you have URLs that don't work?
Sure.. it looks like any slashdot or boinboing link, for instance.
Moving my ~/.mozilla directory for a fresh start makes the problem go away, but
this isn't a very nice work-around, since I have lots of useful state built up

These both work for me.
Anthony, Can you try moving your ~/.mozilla/eclipse out of the way and see if it
Also, if this is an SWT problem, it should probably be filed against the eclipse

I tried this earlier today. It made no difference.

I don't know if it's an SWT problem. Is that what it is for sure?

I'm not sure either. When I was updating the 3.3 SWT firefox patch, I noticed
that the embedded browser would crash if I went to a site with flash when I was
using Sun's VM. Not sure if this is the same problem as you're seeing here.
Maybe you could test those sites with the embedded browser in the Eclipse SDK to
see if you get the same problem. If so we know it's an SWT problem and not an
We figured out what's causing this. I have firefox configured to use Sun's java
plugin. This causes problems when I run a gcj-app using the SWT embedded
I'm going to close this with a WONTFIX, since I personally don't really care to
spend time on making Sun and GNU java systems play nice together, and the
work-arounds are obvious (although annoying).
