Open netsurf global history window

Now try to close the global history window. You'll have to close netsurf completely in order to close the global history window.

The NetSurf frontend in use must be the gtk version to use this tiling window manager.

The GTK version of netsurf obeys the GTK keyboard input guidelines

ctrl-q is used to quit the entire application. The correct accelerator to close a window is Alt+F4 which Netsurf GTK windows correctly implement

My bad. I forgot to mention that I was running the flatpak version.

"The NetSurf frontend in use must be the gtk"

So the flatpak version is broken ? How to run the flatpak with gtk frontend ?
