I had the same "unable to create a browser"-error and fixed it for me with:
/usr/share/rssowl/xulrunner/xulrunner --register-user

Very strange indeed, since now RSSOwl upstream includes an internal xulrunner. They did so they would avoid problems like the one you are reporting.
Try reporting to them, i don't know how to help you.

I am still getting the "RSSOwl was unable to create a browser for reading news." error. I tried: reinstalling, removing ~/.rssowl2 completely, the hunspell symlinking, installing older xulrunner (and pointing RssOwl to it). Nothing helped.

Does anyone else still experiences this problem? Have you found any solution? Thanks for any hints.

In case you still get an "RSSOwl was unable to create a browser for reading news" error with the version 2.1:

# ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

Beta 2.1 is out.
snippet from changelog:
RSSOwl on Linux now bundles XULRunner 1.9 to avoid browser issues on distributions

I found a fix related to xulrunner 2.0. It's for ubuntu 11.04, but works in Arch too.
