Summary and Info: See the upstream bug <> (not reported by me). Attempting to open any epub using Arch's foliate 2.6.4-1 and glib2 2.72.0-1. Apparently, downgrading glib2 fixes it. Opening the issue here so the resolution can be tracked within the Arch Linux project too.

Steps to Reproduce:
* Install foliate
* Attempt to open any epub. e.g. 'foliate foo.epub'
* Observe the error "JS ERROR: Error: Empty Response"
