I was interested to see the new form of the Hotlist where a "dummy Favicon"
is inserted after the "+" sign for nearly all websites as they are visited.
I found three where this doesn't happen, two BBC sites and one from NASA.
What they all seem to have in common is that the URL is changed by the
system on the way to the site. The bit that matters is that the particulars
of the las visit are shown as "unknown" although they are all visited
almost every day.

The latest Netsurfs seem very sensitive to something when I drag a text
from StrongED to a www form.
It happens as I am draging over the NS window, before I release the mouse.
Conceivably it's to do with mouse switch noise but I think not as it
occurs on an RPC as well as an Iyo.
I have put some logs at

When page content includes something like this:
<form method="POST" action="some.cgi"> ...
<input type="submit" value="Go"> ...
<input type="submit" value="Clear">
and the user presses Return,
every other browser will send the post request with the
various arguments from the input elements (i.e. they
default to doing the submit as if the user clicked the Go
button), but NS seems to default to actioning the Clear
If I change the Clear button to
<input type="button" value="Clear">
then pressing Return sends the post request as if the Go
button was clicked (same as other browsers). However,
NS gives a "Warning: button can not be activated" on Clear.
So it seems that NS can't have forms with more than one
but this issue also means cgi scripts can't use multiple
submit buttons and allow for the usual default action of
pressing Return submitting the form with all the
arguments. Obviously there are various workarounds but
I just wondered if there was any chance that NS could
default to actioning the first submit button rather than

I'm not sure if this is a bug or an issue with the way cookies work (I'm
not all that familiar with them).
Deleting cookies - any cookie - seems to be riddled with issues.
When I first select one and delete it (via the toolbar or the menu), the
whole treeview flickers madly for a few seconds. After that, the cookie
disappears from view, but scrolling down to the bottom reveals it's only
been moved to the last entry instead of being deleted. Deleting it from
its new position seems to work.
Deleting several cookies, either via the same delete operation or
individually, results in them all being moved to the bottom. However,
subsequently deleting one which was initially moved there but has since
been pushed up by further deletions works, rather than moving it a few
entries back to the bottom, so it doesn't seem to be a purely positional

Apart from fiddling about altering the two 'Todays' that then become
visible after this error, is there a way of circumventing this by a
small change in the Netsurf program? Or is it far too difficult at
this stage of development?
