When Netsurf is displaying the following page and others on the same
site the pointer starts flickering 2 or 3 times a second between a
pointing hand and an hour glass.
This only happens when the top part of the page is displayed. If you
scroll down it stops; if you scroll back up so that most of the image
is shown it starts again. If you're working in another window over the
top it stops. If you bring NetSurf to the top it resumes. What's going

I don't want a "user experience" - I just want stuff that works.
When you run a NetSurf Full Save application it does not act on the
the CSS information because the CSS file is given a type of Text.
This is on an Iyonix 5.19, NetSurf #674. I think it used to work but
am not sure.
As an example open:-
do a Full Save, then run the resulting !temp application. The
background picture is not shown and the two column layout is lost.
On my machine the CSS file created is called 0x71755530, and has a
type of text. If this is changed to type CSS the two column layout is
reinstated but the background image is still not shown because the
name in the CSS file no longer matches the name of the image that
NetSurf has created.
I will report as a bug if it is confirmed here.

I have just downloaded #672 and ran it. I was horrified at the hash it
made of my homepage, which is http://m.bbc.co.uk/news
I reverted to #671, and it looks the same there. It renders perfectly
in Windows Firefox. The same sort of rubbish is visible on our local
BBC Gloucestershire site, so presumably the BBC web-people think
they've been clever again. I rather incline to thinking that it's
hardly worth raising a bug report on this, but will do so if people
think it's worth it. In the meanwhile, I've changed my homepage.

NetSurf #673 seems to have an aversion to all local html files, A "Warning
from Netsurf" box opens which just reports "Unknown". This occurs on the
ARMini and OS4.39 on VRPC. #672 is OK!
All I could find in the log is :-
(1.760000) riscos/gui.c warn_user 2308: Unknown (null)
The complete log is at http://pittdj.co.uk/temp/unknown.zip with a
minimalist html file sufficient to show the problem.

Looking at the Hotlist files posted by Richard Torrens, the entry which
caused the truncation was (on one line):
••▷ East Anglia Free ads, East Anglia classifieds,
East Anglia FREE CLASSIFIED ADS, 450,000+ free classifieds in the
A possible temporary workaround would be to edit each title, in the
Hotlist window, to remove 'unusual' characters - in this case

Recently I've been suffering increasingly frequent corruption of my
Netsurf hotlist - the telltale symptom is that program beeps on
shutdown, and when it is re-started the hotlist file is truncated and
the remaining portion subtly altered (see artifact 3587232 on bug list)
Mertin has also been complaining of this but that is unsurprising as he
is using the same copy of the application on the same machine (just with
different files in Choices); however this does suggest that it isn't
just some malformation of my particular hotlist file that is causing the
Is anyone else seeing this behaviour?

That, I believe, was 3-4 Nov 2012.
When quitting NetSurf #600 (5 Nov 2012), it consistently re-writes my
Hotlist as a 90K file.
When quitting NetSurf #659 (18 Nov 2012), it consistently re-writes my
Hotlist as an 89K file.
The difference in file-lengths seems to be caused by #600 writing &
whereas #659 writes & , however I can't persuade either NetSurf version
to truncate the Hotlist.
