Which plugin are you using? gtkhml2 or Firefox?  If you are using the gtkhtml2
plugin, could you try the firefox plugin and see if it crashes.

Comment 2 Emmanuel Seyman 2007-07-17 21:55:08 UTC
Okay, here's the deal.

I can reproduce this consistently on Planet Mozilla RSS 2.0 feed.
Using the gtkhtml2 plug-in, I crash with a signal 11 on the entry 
"Doug Turner: Joey and the IPhone".
Using the mozilla plug-in, liferea never crashes.

Are you still experiencing this bug in the 1.4.x branch?

Comment 5 Emmanuel Seyman 2007-12-03 20:48:50 UTC
No, I can't reproduce, even with the RSS feed in the attachement.
