That's fixed (sort of) in r10906. It was one of the many known bits
of brokennes following the core treeview merge a few weeks ago. There
are lots of other bits of those windows that also don't work, if you
go looking for them; I'm afraid that there's no prize if you find them
Thanks for the explanation.

Could you give an example to explain what you're seeing?
In the following partial list, my edited link names are on the upper
line, and the new names, generated by NetSurf, are on the lower line.

I don't understand how NetSurf generates the new names because, since
installing r10903, I have not visited any of the links, and the data is
not present in the old Hotlist html file. eg the old Hotlist html for
the last item above is:
pound / cedi</a></li>
The link name generated by NetSurf appears to be the page title so,
given time, will NetSurf fetch the current page title for every link? If
so, it would seem that there is no point in editing the link name,
because NetSurf will change it back to the page title.
As a related aside...
I thought this had been said, but it's worth repeating: since r10865,
the test builds have contained the core treeview code. While the RISC
OS front-end didn't break as catastrophically as it could have done,
some things do still need work to restore all of their former
It's not an exhaustive list, and it's not really end-user friendly, but
has a list of the main things that are now broken.
Thank you for the link. I had not previously seen that page.
Reports of bugs are still very useful (and if in doubt, it may be
to err on the side of presuming a bug).
