NetSurf 3.10 features many fixes, better performance and improved functionality. In particular, handling of authentication, certificates and fetch errors have been updated and unified. The GTK front end has had a major overhaul too. We recommend all users upgrade to NetSurf 3.10.

A new feature is the page info display which may look familiar to users of mainstream browsers!

Is there way to set size of the "url bar" ? To make it bigger and to make font in it be bigger too ?

Also, is there possibility to use larget icon sets for navigation buttons, a little bit bigger ones.

I just didn't find anything about in netsurf prefs..

Also, i don't know why, but i can't see in the Fonts/FontFamilies any font with anything more than 0. All my font shows like DejaVu Sans/0 , DejaVu Serif/0 , and even if i triing to use font requester, there is only 0 shown always. The only way to increase size of want, its change Font Size value at bottom.

Another issue, that all russian letters are broken (at least in the title). Maybe that related to reaction's settings through, dunno

And i seems can't type into the forms. I.e. can't write anything in the login/password fields on amigans , or on mail.yandex.ru for example. Cursor stays like i type nothing.

That's a lot of questions!

Hmm... it should size to your default font size, ie. change it in GUI Prefs (and assign those prefs to NetSurf's screen if necessary)

Yes, but you'll need to find your own. Have a look in Resources/Themes for examples.

This is normal. You select the font to use for various standard types, the page uses the font size settings to determine the size (which isn't necessarily what you've set, but +/- that value depending on reasons, or an absolute value in pixels or points, which won't go below the minimum size you've set). Also ensure the DPI value is correct as that impacts the conversion of pixels to points and if it's wrong the text won't be the size it is expecting to be, but then that's adjusted by perceived DPI depending on device... anyway, it's complicated, just set whatever works for you.

This should work. Is it the window title, or the tabs, or both?
NetSurf converts the text into the local charset; if the local charset can print the characters it will display them.

That sounds like the same issue, but in reverse.

Hold on... what charset are you using? You need to use ISO-8859-5 OR if you need to use Amiga-1251 for some reason you can trick NetSurf by setting local_charset:Windows-1251 in {users/default/}Choices.

Outstanding bug here: https://bugs.netsurf-browser.org/mantis/view.php?id=2578

I was going to rewrite these conversion routines to use codesets.library apparently, but have failed to do so thus far.

Did you run Netsurf 3.10 with your X5000 Beta Setup or with normal FE Setup ?

I can't start Netsurf 3.1 on my X5000 with latest beta-updates. I can post a crashlog if someone needs it ?

I also receive a requester saying DejaVu Sans is missing..

I didn't have this problem with Netsurf 3.9

Please send me the crashlog or post it here and give me the link.

@kas1e

Build 5170 or higher now uses codesets.library if installed (most people already have it)

https://ci.netsurf-browser.org/builds/amiga/

Give it a try and see if it resolves the issue. I tested here and it appears to be fine.

Hmm, there can be problem : i have small font in url-bar only in netsurf but nowhere else in the system (or maybe it just some special settins in gui prefs which i just didn't touch and which didn't visibly in the system). Sadly with reaction we don't have per-app settings like in MUI from the dropbar gadget (right ?)


As for broken letters: yeah, It was both and title and tabs, but now i install 5170 version and yes, now titles and tabs find, as well as i can login to amigans.net (so typed it now from netsurf). Thanks!

 Re: netsurf
I think in Screen Prefs you can assign your GUI prefs file to the Default screen. That might be enough to get the settings copied over.

Here is the crashlog

http://crashlog.os4depot.net/?function=view&crashlogid=420

About DejaVu_Sans font missing:

Netsurf 3.10 is looking for a font "DejaVu Sans"

Could it be it is missing "_" character ?

 Re: netsurf
@SinanSam460

The font name is DejaVu Sans, if your system is showing it with an underscore then that's weird and probably the issue. There's some hardcoded default fonts for a new install which expect fonts that come installed with OS4.

I've just pushed an update to try and stop the crash (not sure if it will) - build 5171 or higher from https://ci.netsurf-browser.org/builds/amiga/

If you can get into the settings (with that updated version) you can set the fonts to ones that exist. Otherwise, have a look in (or create) users/default/Choices and add:
font_sans:DejaVu_Sans
font_serif:DejaVu_Serif
font_mono:DejaVu_Mono
font_cursive:DejaVu_Sans
font_fantasy:DejaVu_Serif

That should at least get you to the point where you can change the settings.

Thanks Chris. Amigans.net seems to render fine on NetSurf 3.10, but the Publish Comment button below the news item does not work. I think this is the same as before with other versions of NetSurf.

Edit and Reply work just fine.

Thanks so much for contining to support and upgrade NetSurf.

Hi Chris. I just noticed that I can't see the User Menu on Amigans website. How do I logout from Amigans website using NetSurf 3.10. Normally, I would see the menu and pick logout.

Not sure if this happened with previous versions of NetSurf.

 Re: netsurf
@Chris Thank you for the update! I still prefer NetSurf for much of my HTML use. I was wondering if there is a way to turn off the error output window (couldn't find a setting for this in the Prefs). Already with version 3.9 I noticed an increased number of error reports (most of which are Duktape-related), which I understand is the result of our browsers lagging behind the web standards more and more. Still I'd prefer if I could get rid of the error display.

You can tweak the error reporting levels using log_filter and verbose_filter. Not sure what the parameters are though!

 Re: netsurf
OK, I'll have another look at the crashing, but this is your problem:
"Bold font defined for DejaVu_Sans is DejaVu Sans Bold" (etc)

Within your DejaVu_Sans.font it is pointing to DejaVu Sans Bold and other fonts to get the designed bold versions. Because your fonts have the wrong names these don't exist. You need to go into TypeManager and fix them. (actually I'd recommend just downloading the latest DejaVu fonts package and reinstalling them completely with the correct names)
