A comment from Brian Jordan on the meiling list. I don't understand it, but maybe the developers can:

If you want to enhance your report Netsurf is being tripped up by the
following meta statement within the <head></head> of the document.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content=
  "text/html; charset=us-ascii" />

An interesting page in many ways, running it through HTML Tidy here
throws up a lot of warnings and concludes "Info: Document content looks
like HTML Proprietary"

This appears to be a JavaScript issue, the site loads without error if JavaScript is disabled.

Please try this with a current CI build - it works for me in CI #3348 with Javascript enabled, so I think it may have been fixed somewhere along the way.

The 'OK' fault is still present here with #3348 with Javascript enabled, and on one occassion NetSurf crashed out with a Segmentation fault though that is not repeatable. The logged line is :-

riscos/gui.c:2072 warn_user: OK (null)

Tested on both the Raspberry Pi and A9home.

TRied it here (ARMX6, RISCOS 5.23, NetSurf #33644) and I still get the "OK" and then an hourglass, and need to do alt-break to get back control, so no logfile is available.

Peter, can you try with a current dev version, please? I've just tried it with the current dev version (4213) on RO 5.23 of about 4 weeks ago, and it appears to work fine.
Peter Young


Peter Young (reporter)

Yes, working perfectly now. Many thanks. I'd forgtten about this one!

Don't know when it was fixed - the problem was originally reported in a very old version.
