Comment 1 Mattia Verga 2021-09-05 08:45:22 UTC
This is caused by a problem with qt5-qtwebengine and should be fixed by qt5-qtwebengine-5.15.6-1.fc35 in

Can you try that update?

Comment 2 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2021-09-05 08:48:46 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 35-beta by Fedora user mattia using the blocker tracking app because:

 All programs that rely on qt5-qtwebengine (Falkon, KMail, Akregator, ...) are currently broken in F35, because no web content is showed.

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2021-09-06 14:54:16 UTC
FEDORA-2021-2b436cae88 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 35.

Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2021-09-06 15:12:10 UTC
+3 for Beta FE in , marking accepted.

Comment 5 Steven Usdansky 2021-09-06 17:38:50 UTC
qt5-qtwebengine-5.15.6-1.fc35 fixed the problem for me

Comment 6 Lukas Ruzicka 2021-09-07 08:34:07 UTC
I can confirm that Falkon works normally with that update.

Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2021-09-07 17:13:07 UTC
Discussed at 2021-09-06 blocker/FE review meeting: . Rejected as a Beta blocker as there is no Beta criterion that this violates, really (the default browser on KDE is Firefox, as noted). It is already accepted as an FE, so the fix will be pulled in.

Comment 8 Fedora Update System 2021-09-07 19:07:45 UTC
FEDORA-2021-2b436cae88 has been pushed to the Fedora 35 stable repository.
