Now I'm up to date: using #665 with RO5.19 (29-Oct-12), running on
RPCEmu v0.8.9, and with RO6.20 running on a SARPC, here there is still
no truncation of a 90K Hotlist file, when NetSurf is quit.
I would like to be able to fix some heading content on a page so that
when the page is scrolled the heading stays on the screen.
Is there anyway to do this that would work in NetSurf?
It can be done with CSS but unfortunately NetSurf has not yet
implemented the position:fixed property.
The following web page works after a fashion on Chromium, but not on
Helpful suggestions would bemuch appreciated.

We held our latest developer workshop this weekend, I have written
about it on my blog for those who might be interested in what we got
Version 2.9, and version 3.0 (2012-10-03_19-43-06) of NetSurf mess up
the top menu line of the raspberry pi home page by overlaying the
text, "Skip to primary content" over the menu items.
I don't have the expertise to be able to tell whether this is this a
bug in NetSurf or is caused by a badly written web-page?
(The page displays correctly using Chromium browser on Lubuntu)

NetSurf redraws its pages in rectangular sections. This process
involves decoding any image files, such as JPEGs, which may be present
in that section.
At the moment, if an error occurs (e.g. JPEG data is invalid or
otherwise fails to decode), the redraw of the entire section is
cancelled. This is undesirable, because it leads to the appearance of
large blank white spaces on a page with invalid images on it.
You can see an example of the problems this causes here:
There are two invalid JPEGs in the sidebar there (or at least JPEGs
which RISC OS doesn't seem to like; Linux renders them OK). These are
the link to 'Skull Art' just beneath the (working) 'Corporate Skull
Guest Artist Week' image, and the Ink Outbreak avatar in the top-left of
the box beneath that.
If you slowly scroll down the page using NetSurf on RISC OS, you'll see
a thick white horizontal bar blotting out the image in the blog post to
the left of the Skull Art picture, as well as the Skull Art picture
itself failing to render.
If you press F12 and then Return with the faulty JPEG showing, most of
the window goes white!
NetSurf may not be able to render an image, but could it at least not
trash the rest of the page because of it?

On the main page of arstechnica.com some of the text has the top chopped
Also where the text overlays an image only the first word that overlays the
image clips the image to a white background.
Open the following web page:
The chances are you'll see blank rectangles in the central bit. The
nav-bar down the left is probably OK. Now wipe another window over the
NetSurf window. As you move the other window aside content will be
revealed. However if you just put the window to the back it will leave
white space where it was.

I don't want a "user experience" - I just want stuff that works.
I have just noticed that there is a facebook page for Netsurf.
How about including a link to it on the opening page?

The page shown at www.bjordan.org.uk/test/index.html has started
throwing up a "NetSurf is running out of memory" error since at least
NetSurf 3.0 (Dev CI#471) and up to 492.
In fairness the file is a data file named as .html and RISC OS file
typed as HTML; it is prepared for use in a program which later adds it
to a template file to produce a valid page. The file contains valid
HTML and for many years I have been able to open it in NetSurf as part
of the editing process.
It opens as expected in NetSurf 2.9 and in the main Windows browsers
and is available in a .zip file at www.bjordan.org.uk/test/test.zip
