Is it just me? I am finding that since using the 6th May version, sockets
are being eaten up with each new website selected, and not being released.
Consequently, the number reduces to zero and Netsurf returns e.g.
"Sorry, NetSurf was unable to display this page
Could not resolve host: news.google.co.uk (Domain name not found)"
Quitting and restarting restores socket number to 87

Earlier versions continue to work as normal with the same local URL.

This would suggest that you're leaving all DNS queries to your router or
ISP to answer - so if they're not available, they can't answer the

networking configuration. I have no idea how to do that under RISC OS
anymore, so I can't help with the specifics.
