    2. I may have found a bug in Qupzilla when using the FB chat box. I'm using Windows XP and Qupzilla 1.6.6 portable. Always when I click to one of my buddys in the FB chat box, Qupzilla hangs up and I have to kill process with taskmanager.

      Hopefully this can be fixed.

      1. It is important to understand, that QupZilla uses the qtwebkit engine to display and render web content. If you are using a less stable version of qtwebkit it might probably be, that you will be affected by crashes more often.

      2. but i use the qtWebkit that came with the qupzilla browser 1.6.6 which has got the latest one i believe( version4.8).

        Delete
      3. O.k., I did not know, that you are using the windows build. If you are affected by a reproducible crash, then open an issue (https://github.com/QupZilla/qupzilla/issues) and follow the steps, that are described here:

    6. I just found that I couldn't change the toolbar icon size like I did in 1.4 series before. Is there any alternative way to change the size of toolbar icon?

      1. How did you do that in the past? I never made use of it.

        Delete
      2. I made some change into linux/main.css about the size of button.
        But this trick doesn't work anymore. Do you have any other suggestion?

        Delete
      3. As far as I understood QupZilla takes the icons from your desktop theme - I assume, you are on linux. If you would like to see bigger icons in the toolbar, you will have to user bigger icons in your desktop theme.

    8. Hi

      Well done to the developers of this software.

      In my opinion, we need to find alternatives to the following technologies :

      1. Google chrome
      2. Facebook
      3. Google search engine

      I know many won't understand this, but google is suspected to be connected to the Illuminati : http://www.infowars.com/googles-illuminati-themed-new-years-eve/

      This needs to be taken seriously.

      The masonic pyramid needs to be exposed.

      Also, concerning facebook :

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13s2fsaPWJo

      One possible strategy to avoid the conglomeration and monopolization by these companies and technologies is :

      1. Expose occult connotations in corporate logos
      2. Analyze impact on the poor and the environment
      3. Determine impact on unethical wars where innocent people are killed.
      4. Create network of churches that are aware of these issues, and encourage christians to create their own technology, even if based on open source software AND hardware.
      5. Expose the attempt by these corporations to buy out smaller ones. The greed for money needs to be resisted.
      6. Monitor the association between these companies, individuals are rogue goverments.

      TOWARDS THE REVOLUTION !!!

      2. Hi, DuckDuckGo (https://duckduckgo.com) is a GREAT alternative to Google search. I completely agree about us needing more alternatives to the big companies. I'd use Qupzilla, except that every time I open it, it crashes, and I have to kill it :-(. I'll be waiting until they can get a version that doesn't crash.

      3. It is important to understand, that QupZilla uses the qtwebkit engine to display and render web content. If you are using a less stable version of qtwebkit it might probably be, that you will be affected by crashes more often.

        If your crash is reproducible, then please open an issue (https://github.com/QupZilla/qupzilla/issues) and follow the steps, that are described on the Bug-Reports wiki page.

        Thank you for your cooperation.

      4. I actually just started using it again, after a long while not using it, and it's gotten much better crash-wise. I have learned that I can't have very many tabs open at once, though :-) Also, is it just me, or does QupZilla not remember my form data like Chrome does?

        Delete
      5. To let QupZilla remember form data you might want to use the PIM extension, which can be enabled via Preferences -> Extensions -> Application Extensions.
        Would you please specify, what is the limitation with the tab usage?

      6. I'm unable to get a definent number, it varies, but no more then 15-20 as best I can tell. Also, I'm a web designer (front-end, as a hobby), and so my dev tools are pretty important to me, but the instant I hit F12 or right-click and go to "inspect element", the page turns gray or blue or sometimes even white, and I can't see the page to select certain elements on the page that I want to learn about. I can still click links and stuff, though. Do you know anything about this? Am I not doing something right?

      7. What happens, if you open for example 30 tabs? What version of QupZilla are you using/ what OS?

        Delete
      8. I'm using the latest version, 1.6.6, and I'm running Ubuntu Studio 14.04. When I open too many tabs, my mouse starts to get jerky, my memory shoots way up, and I end up having to kill it. Do you know anything about the dev tools not working?

        Delete
      9. I am sorry, but I do not use the dev tools too often. Could you try to switch to another theme?

        Delete
      10. Sorry for the late reply.
        The problem somehow fixed itself, without my knowingly changing anything, so I think it was my OS's problem, rather than your browser.

    9. Hi. I can't seem to get spell-check to work. I made sure hunspell is in the right place. I'm running Kubuntu 14.04. Any suggestions?

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. Did you these instructions?

        In order to provide spell checking, dictionaries needs to be found and loaded.
        This plugin is looking for possible directories by parsing DICTIONARY and DICPATH environment variables. If those variables are not set, the plugin will look for dictionaries in /usr/share/hunspell/.

        Example:

        export DICTIONARY=en_US
        export DICPATH=/home/user/hunspell/

        Will try to load:
        /home/user/hunspell/en_US.dic
        /home/user/hunspell/en_US.aff

    10. Folks, I downloaded the portable version this weekend: qupzilla166.exe. I then sandboxed it using zonealarm because I'm using it only to access an app running on my local box on port 8080. Periodically it attempts to connect to 254.128.0.0 16992 then 16993, then to my PC (that it's running on) by it's IP address to those same 2 ports. This smells bad to me. Anyone else seeing the same behavior? Thanks. I looked on the website but did not see anywhere to leave this sort of feedback.

      1. I assume, that the IP-address 254.128.0.0 belongs to a local windows service like file or printing. What results gives invoking

        >route print

        in a terminal window?

    11. Thanks for your great job! It's a very efficient browser.

    13. I just discovered Qupzilla yesterday! So far, it's seems like an excellent browser with better memory usage than Firefox.

      I am especially pleased with all the default settings that it starts with (Adblock enabled, do not track enabled, pretty theme etc.) It's refreshing that a browser is fully functional out of the box.

      Keep up the good work!

    15. Is there any comparison, review of qupzilla's security capabilities vis-a-vis the top mainstream browsers?
      For eg. is it safe to use it for financial (banking), personal (data) type transactions?

      Replies
      1. As far as I know, there is no comparison available, which will reveral the requested information as an article or summary. What you can do is to visit these web-pages

        https://www.howsmyssl.com/
        https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html#1410002914090&frame_loaded

        access them with firefox, chrome, qupzilla and compare the results.

    16. Have a nice day, thanks for all this work. I planted some QupZilla recently, now I'm using it as the primary browser. My operating system is Linux Mint. Please, can be repaired:
      1. It is not possible to do in bookmarks folder under components. In addition too many bookmarks in a folder on rail will cause impossibility opening such component. cursor when clicking opens a random bookmark which is in a folder on the top position.
      2. is not possible wheel mouse run smooth viewing pages like they do in Firefox. But it is a small one.
      Thanks again!

      1. Regarding 1.
        Please have a look at the FAQ, https://github.com/QupZilla/qupzilla/wiki/FAQ, Question (12)

        Regarding 2.
        Please try to load the AutoScroll extension. You will find it in Preferences -> Extensions -> Application Extensions - if provided by your distribution.

      2. Thank you, Jon. I've got version 1.6.0, I'll wait for newer version

      3. Please have a look here (http://www.geekssharingspace.org/2014/06/how-to-install-qupzilla-166-using-ppa.html). This might help you to get a more recent version of QupZilla.

    17. Request: Change viewingcolor of pagebackground and textcolor in the browser. Maybe that you have black background (instead of white), and yellow textcolor (instead of black).... or your customable colors - it will be better for persons who have viewingproblems (better for handicapped/physically disabled people with sightproblems)

      ReplyDelete
    18. I don't know if it's possible, but to have the option to put the tabs from top to the left or right would be kind of nice (like it's possible on Midori).
      Additionally to have colored tabs would be nice as well.

      But all in all it's one of the best alternatives. And it's the best browser based on Qt currently! Thanks a lot for that!!!
