I have downloaded the latest test build r12932, and find that it
treats frames in an entirely different way to what it test builds did
less than 3 months ago.
Positioning the mouse pointer over any one frame and rotating the
scroll wheel used to scroll only the frame that it was underneath it;
now it scrolls the whole caboodle, and reveals a previously unseen
blank frame at the bottom. (??)
It also scrolls (using the slider bars) much less smoothly, and rather
I am looking at:

Using Netsurf r 13320 and only accessing one website today I had a
dialogue box from Netsurf saying it was running out of memory.
I went to the online page at Bank of Scotland:
It does then go to a mobile site version which works fine with Netsurf
or you can go back to the desktop site.
Immediately, a Cookie confirmation box comes up which is fine,but this
happens everytime.After you accept it, the hard drive is being
accessed continuously, then after one ot two clicks on the webpage it
reports that memory is running out.
Check out Brian's pics at:
I'm sure most of you will already have downloaded newer versions of
the NS test-builds but for those who haven't its worth doing if only
for the improvements to the scroll wheel speed. Scrolling is more akin
to what one expects in StrongED and EasiWriter.
Excellent work Steve.
Wakefield 2012 - Saturday 28th April
Im running a copy of RPCEmu originally from one of ROOLs London Show
memory sticks on a Windows 7 machine (Dell XPS, 3.4GHz Core i7, 8MB
RAM). It runs very well, averaging around 300 MIPS, but I find NetSurf
2.8 for RISC OS (installed from a fresh download) will not launch.
Ive updated !Boot and !System, but clicking on the NetSurf icon
produces an endlessly cycling hourglass. RPCEmu is not yet bridged to
the web, but I assume this isnt necessary in order to use NetSurf as
(for example) an HTML viewer?
I'm inexperienced with RPCEmu (and Windows 7, for that matter), so
apologies in advance if I've overlooked the 'bleedin' obvious'.
If anyone can tear themselves away from the festivities long enough to
reply I should be most grateful!
This has probably got more to do with First Group redesigning their
web site than NetSurf, but http://www.firstgreatwestern.co.uk/ fails
to render anywhere close to what it should look like. Mind you the
home page has 36 validation errors.

I don't want a "user experience" - I just want stuff that works.
Im new to this project, so bear with me if Im barking up the wrong tree.
I have made a Fedora based distribution to an ARM9263 processor
including using the rpm package system.
My tool chain includes a full gcc4.4.2 cross.
Is there any documentation on how to proceed in the porting?
My first inclination was to export the trunk and then form 2 rpms.
NetSurfLib and NetSurf itself.
However I am hitting a few kinks which I believe is enough to start
asking these questions.
Amongst others I am hit with the problem that gcc in a full cross will
refuse dumping the specs which in turn confuses NetSurfs makefile so it
wont find the libnsgif simply because it cant figure out what compiler
is in play.
- where to look for a porting procedure?
- what libs and parts from the trunk are needed for the netsurf build?
- oo - and remember to state that automake > ver 1.1 if you want it to
compile. Otherwise you will get some strange errors,

I note that the documentation page of the NetSurf site says
"last updated 2 January 2007". I hope I am not being a nuisance
in enquiring whether there is any prospect of the :hover
pseudoclass being implemented for the RISC OS version any time
soon. It is just that there are so many useful features for web pages,
such as tooltips, that can be implemented with it. It would be
good to be able to see these on a RISC OS browser.
Apologies if I am overlooking more recent information.

This has been occurring for some months. Installed the latest version
(r13269) and still no better:
The right-hand edge of the main frame on the Archive home page
(www.archivemag.co.uk) gets chopped off.
If you drag the window wider, using the button at bottom right, the
missing parts of the frame appear during the drag, but then the
contents of the frame become wider so that the right-hand strip is
chopped off again.
Display is fine in Fresco and XP Firefox.
(I know frames are out of fashion, but that's not the point.)

Currently using r13267 (10 Dec 2011 01:15).
I've seen this in a few web sites, just highlighted in a link posted
in one of the CSA newsgroups to http://www.adventurecycling.org/
When you have a link such as this:
Some text<A HREF="http://someurl" TARGET="_blank"> Link text</A>
the space before "Link text" does not render in Netsurf, so you get
the text before the link running straight in to the link text.
I don't know if this is incorrect syntax - in most cases the space
comes before the link and of course that renders OK.
I've had a look and couldn't see it on the Bug Tracker - thought I'd
raise it here first in case it isn't an actual bug...
I took a course in speed waiting. Now I can wait an hour in just
