Got it, thanks.
Let a fool hold his tongue and he will pass for a sage.
Is it intended that Netsurf should remember where it has saved pages,
as other Browsers do?
Every time I save a page I have to drag it to the directory, even if I
have saved to that location already during that session. It would be
so much easier if I could just click save and it knew where to put it!
With thanks for all your great work!
Prompted by James' post I just downloaded the most recent build and it
seems way faster than the one I've been using :-) Keep up the good work!
On the down side... my page at: http://www.snowstone.org.uk/riscos/ has a
alternative. NetSurf renders is with a large section of blank space - there
should be no gap between "have a look at this" and "quick example".
Is it a problem with my page, or NetSurf's rendering?

I simply can't get NetSurf to download any more; I've tried on three or
four different occasions over the last month and it just keeps failing
partway through. Is there another source somewhere?
Mate, this parrot wouldn't VOOM if you put four million volts through it!
There seems to be a small problem when a web page is not available:
I guess the server is down ATM: cURL returns the following:
* About to connect() to stats.distributed.net port 80
* Connect failed
* Closing connection #0
curl: (7) Connect failed
Nothing special... but if you go to a non-existent domain:
and then reload the first webpage (<http://stats.distributed.net/>), then the
domain name of the non-exitent domain appears in the reply: i.e. 'Could not
resolve host: www.netsurffoo.org (Domain name not found)'
Could this be fixed?

The first page is not displayed properly. Netsurf has trouble with the menu
on the left side at the top of the page under the title.

I have updated the compiler and libraries on the NetSurf builder to
the latest versions. This fixes a few bugs:
- files in the root of a disc with an extension not loading
- a server sending no headers causing a crash (recent thread
"disappears from desktop & icon bar", and earlier reports)
- the speed loss that occurred in June
Unfortunately the new version of libxml has caused the rendering of
some sites to change. We'll try and fix this soon.
Developers: the new libraries used by the autobuilder are at
Please test and report bugs (except the rendering one, which causes
extra space to appear on pages). Thanks!
Latest version, 30.10.2005, now crashes off the icon bar when reaching
the welcom page at http://www.highlandaeroclub.co.uk
Previous versions made an attempt to display the frames/frameset.
Can't tell with this version ;-(

When I visited this link
the writable field was much smaller than the cursor. The
field contained the text "enter FULL postcode" which would
normally disappear when the cursor is clicked in it. It
didn't do this, nor did it respond to <ctrl>U.
After much faffing about, I clicked where I thought the
cursor should be in the field, typed in my postcode blind,
clicked "Go" and, thankfully, it made the link to the next
Any idea what's going on and if it can be fixed?
Thanks and keep up the good work.
