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
Currently using r13534.

I don't want a "user experience" - I just want stuff that works.
We have done quite a bit of development since we last issued test builds
and we have also changed our autobuilding infrastructure completely. With
these changes we are now building NetSurf builds with far more up-to-date
versions of 3rd party libraries, and it is now quite trivial to keep them
It would help us if people could test the new builds and let us know how
you get on.
CAUTION: SAVE ALL WORK BEFORE RUNNING THESE BUILDS
We have at least one case of NetSurf freezing a
RISC OS Iyonix such that it needs to be reset.
New builds are available from:
http://ci.netsurf-browser.org/ (Use the latest one available)
If you try one of the new builds, please let us know:
+ which front end (e.g. RISC OS, Amiga, etc)
+ which version of the OS
+ whether there was a problem
> what was happening when it went wrong
+ what the download file name of the NetSurf version you tried was
Michael Drake (tlsa) http://www.netsurf-browser.org/
front end: RISC OS
OS version: 5.18
problem: freeze while scrolling through
download file: netsurf-2012-09-28_19-54-37/zip
Note that POPstar was not running - so no clash with other
fetchers. So far freezes seem to happen after just
the slightest scrolling down the page; sometimes after
quite lengthy and varied browsing, sometimes, as in this
case, on the first page opened (so doubtful if any gc can
have taken place). This apparent randomness gives me the
hunch that it has something to do with buffers being
allocated where they should not be, but maybe such a comment
is unhelpful without any evidence.
Sometimes pressing the reset button works - sometimes I have
to toggle the on/off switch at the back.

On the Netsurf 2.9 home page, clicking on the link to ROOL produces a
Warning from Netsurf
"error setting certificate verify locations:"
(Nothing after the colon)
No idea what this means. The guys at ROOL say their SSL certificate
is unchanged and valid until the end of 2013. Besides, this link is
calling http, not https. (Using an Iyonix here, OS 5.18.)
What could the explification be?
However, I can go to a page further in at the ROOL site, which I found
from a Google search --
http://www.riscosopen.org/content/downloads/module-zipfiles -- and
from the "tab" panel there to other pages at ROOL.
Curiously, Netsurf 2.9 on the RiscPC (OS 4.39) has no problem.

Fay is not a happy person at the moment, apparently QVC have re-designed
their front page, and as she uses NetSurf (r13571) to view the stuff,
suddenly she can't see menus and such like that a couple of days ago she
outside my paygrade so to speak.
Could someone with knowledge please have a quick look at...
It's mainly the menus down the lefthand side.
Having installed Reporter for another unrelated reason, I have noticed that
on every occasion a Netsurf window is opened, Netsurf calls for the Iconv
16:08:19.82 [Appl/NetSurf] RMEnsure Iconv 0.04 RMload System:Modules.Iconv
16:08:19.82 [Appl/NetSurf] RMEnsure Iconv 0.04 Error 16_10F iconv support
requires the Iconv module 0.04 or newer
I have a copy of Iconv :
==> Help on keyword Iconv
Module is: Iconv 0.11 (04 Jan 2011)
in System:Modules, so I don't understand why it is constantly being called
for - and a lot of times. The above is repeated 32 times each time a new
window is opened!
