Dave Higton, Brian Howlett and Peter Young report that Netsurf #4088
works properly for them.
I tried reverting to Netsurf 3.3 and now see the same blank there too.
Which was not the case here in the past.
Ah, on my Armini it DOES work correctly, just not on the ArmX6.
So it must be something in my system -- but what? I checked all the
options in Netsurf iconbar choices: nothing seems relevant to this
question, and I haven't changed anything there in months.
Aha. My desktop font (set in Configure > Theme) is Oxford, which is
held in FontFS on the ArmX6. If I change desktop font to Homerton,
which is in "rom", Netsurf's info line returns to normal behaviour.
Misbehaviour again if I choose any other FontFS font as desktop.
Yet the Armini has exactly the same desktop font as ArmX6, and
there Netsurf behaviour is normal. So I remain puzzled.
Anyway, the problem is not with Netsurf. I'll pursue my puzzlement
