There are several things you can do to alleviate this problem:
From 1.1.2, Awasu allows you to control the presentation of content. "Excerpt" shows a short extract from the start of each feed item (useful if they are very long) and "Plain text" of course, shows a plains text version of the content. Both these also strip HTML tags and so disable popups. I'll also be adding a "Safe" mode shortly that strips the problematic HTML stuff but leaves the safe stuff in place.
Alternately, you can modify Awasu to use Mozilla as it's embedded browser instead of IE. Details are in the site FAQ:
