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.

when im in the global history window. ctrl+q does not quit netsurf. Nothing happens when I hit ctrl+q in the global history window. Same for alt+f4

"The NetSurf frontend in use must be the gtk"

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