I am using NetSurf (Test Build 06 Aug 2006) to access the Genes
Reunited site <http://wwwgenesreunited,co,uk>
but frequently, when
trying to move on to the next page get a blank page with the message:
'Sorry, NetSurf was unable to display this page' then in smaller print:
'Connection time-out after 30020 ms'
Netsurf is still on line and I can go back to any previous page, so
what exactly does this mean?
Precisely what it says; the server took longer than 30 seconds to respond
(or, alternatively, the amount of data transferred within the last 30
seconds was below the threshold at which NetSurf decides that a
connection's dead). Clicking the reload button will generally cause the
page to load correctly, unless the server is unable to service the page
request in a timely manner.
Also, when I try to edit my family tree, which I sent them, I get
error message: 'Your browser does not support i-frames. Please upload
a later version'. What are i-frames please, and will NetSurf be
supporting them in due course?
It already does support IFrames; that you saw that message was due to an
oversight in NetSurf (now fixed).
