    This does not appear to be a bug in pkgbrowser.

    The error almost certainly occurs because your pacman.log file has a different encoding (probably "latin-1") to your system default text encoding (probably "utf-8").

    You therefore need to fix the pacman.log file by saving it with the correct encoding (but please make a backup of it before trying this).
