Sometime after r8950 - 1st Aug 2009, accessing my French bank results in
this error at the password box appearing stage:
Sorry, NetSurf was unable to display this page
Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to

is this a known problem, or does it happen just to me?
i'm typing a message to a forum in one of those text-input boxes.
in order to move some bits around more easily, i decided to copy what
i'd written and paste it into a text editor. luckily i did the paste
first, for as soon as i deleted the original, Netsurf crashed.
whereupon i recalled that this had happened to me in the past, but
don't think i reported it at the time.
will send bug report and logfile. using NS r9799 on RO 4.39.

I rather like the way NetSurf does a full save when you can't download
all the images because of lack of memory. I came across a Japanes site
with 186 images on one page, most of them big ones. I quit as many
apps as I could but even so there wasn't enough room.
I did a full save and noticed that the index file held the absolute
urls for images that weren't downloaded. I was able to delete the tags
for images I already had and load the page again to get the next
tranche. Three such operations were necessary before I got all the
Would it be possible to have a full save in which all the images were
stored on the hard disc even if they couldn't be rendered at the same
time? Or perhaps a "Save target as..." option on a link which would do
the same? As far as I can see "Download target" will only save the
object itself i.e. one image or the page source.

Please reply to the list.

I am doing that, rather than using the bug-tracking system, because I
tried the latter on a previous occasion and found it very hard to use.
I attach a log file.
NetSurf was working OK until a few days ago, when it took to crashing
when started. I am not aware of making any change to my system, which
is an Iyonix running RISC OS 5.11. (I am intending to install 5.16
soon but am deferring that until I have copied some applications and
data files to a new computer.)
At the time I thought the problem was with the particular website, but
I have now found that NetSurf crashes even when started by
double-clicking the application directory.
I have reinstalled the latest version. I have also moved
!Boot.Choices.WWW.NetSurf and allowed NetSurf to re-create that from
None of that has made any difference.
On my website there is an inconsistency between RISC OS and Linux when
displaying an image via a css defined background-url.
On RISC OS NetSurf R8643
www.gaydon.org.uk displays a background image of wind turbines.
If you click on the first link: - contacts
The contacts page is displayed and the background image is also shown.
On Linux NetSurf (1.2) the background image is not displayed for the
They can't both be right - I believe the Linux behaviour is correct
but would welcome a another opinion.
