I did report it here last week. It's due to the broken cookie support in
NetSurf at the moment. It does work (of sorts) here, but seems very
intermittent, so I don't think NetSurf is correctly reading/writing the
cookies. Best bet is to delete the cookies file in NetSurf, when click on
the 'Enable all panels' link, which should turn them all on, then quit and
reload NetSurf. It should then work ok, but you probably won't be able to
turn them on or off properly.
