Although I am generally pleased with Netsurf, and spend many hours
entertaining my friends with it's unique capabilities, especially with
its graphical History, I still cannot print with it. I keep on getting
the following error code:
'An error has occurred when printing: Undefined font handle (print
This happens on all five of our machines, all RPC SA running !Printers
1.91a, on Select or Adjust 4.39. It happens regardless of whether it's
asked to print to printer or print to file. Standard fonts are used.
When trying to install Riscos 6 (that's another story) I cleaned one
machine down to a bare disc, with a fresh !Boot, installed printers,
still !Netsurf wouldn't print, with the same error code.
I reported it as a bug ages ago, but nothing seems to have been done
This email has not been scanned for Windows viruses or anything else,
because it's RiscOS and eats them without getting indigestion
I'm mentioning this here as well because I suspect this bug is the root of a
lot of 'Netsurf crashed without warning' reports.
Load a page with graphics on it.
Click-drag in the page, and the mouse pointer should change to a hand icon,
alowing you to drag-scroll the page up and down, if it's big enough.
Menu-click a graphic on the page, select Object->Save->Save as
Drag and drop the file icon somewhere useless, like an empty area on the
task bar or the pinboard, thereby producing an aborted save. Feel free to
click elsewhere oin the screen to clear away any open Netsurf menus. Makes
Now try click-dragging again anywhere in the page, and you should get the
hand icon again for an instant, and an immediate crash of Netsurf. In
practice of course, the tiniest movement when clicking could get interpreted
as a drag-scroll. Thereafter, the next inadvertent click-drag, /even several
pages later/ will provoke a crash. Log files available if needed, but this
is now 100% repeatable for me.
(Tested with gif, png and jpg, may well apply to any aborted save.)
By the way, I also noticed that the file save icon for all images types uses
the jpg icon, whether the image being saves is jpg, png or gif.
Simon Smith The idea of an uncrackable digital rights management
(DRM) scheme is fundamentally flawed. Encryption is
about A sending information to B while ensuring that
C cannot read it. In DRM, B and C are the same person.

I use StreetMap for preference. It gives a bigger area, and I find it
easier to use. http://www.streetmap.co.uk/

Hi. Is it normal for the Hard disc to be continually accessed (very short
duration) once you have accessed a web site even though you've closed the
window. This continues until Netsurf is quit. Restarting Netsurf does not
introduce the accessing until you access another web site.

I've posted a bug report on the tracker about having had the HSBC site
http://www.hsbc.co.uk/1/2/personal/pib-home twice completely stiff
NetSurf, needing the reset button to escape the hang. Once was on the
log-in page and the other using "Return to my accounts".
I know there are other HSBC customers who use NetSurf to access their
accounts; have any of these also found this, or is my setup to blame?

Following the release of 1.0, here's the plan for NetSurf versions.
* Bugs in 1.0 will be fixed and released as 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, ..., as needed.
There will probably be no new features in these versions. The aim is to
remain stable and low-risk with no major work.
* Main development will continue in a version called "2.0 (Development)".
There will be automatic test builds of this (as before). This is the
cutting-edge version with higher risk of problems, but also new features.
Eventually this will lead to the 2 series.
We hope that many of you on this list will continue with us on the test builds
journey! You can always go back to 1.n when it goes wrong.
