Otter Browser Forum / a major crush
now, i won't call this a Otter bug, but rather maybe how Otter handles JS

/spoiler ahead, "illegal" site in question

so the famous torrent site in this case, not for advertising purpose
but check what it does, they have imposed advert popup everytime you click on a link
then it counts down to what ? ... maybe 10 seconds, to "acknowledge" you clicked on it
and now you can click on any movie title... (during those 10 seconds)

then they re-enable this annoying advert re-direct again
-----

since im primary using Waterfox which is Gecko 52 based, this isn't issue
as browser just makes a pop-up window, and you can close it
BUT
Otter on other hand for some reason constantly reloads this ad-redirect link
thus freezes both primary and secondary tab/window, and your only choise is to force kill app
again, i write this not to complain on Otter, but rather that Emdek and who-ever also does the coding
checks what the F is going on there,

Otter Browser Forum / 184 bugs and nags
since I dunno when will 185 come out, ill put what 184 has ...

first off, I'm very happy how Otter progresses (every few months)

Bugs: - Win7 x64 // x64 Otter build
1. ANY download/transfer, when comes to 99.9% CRASHES - ALWAYS
2. Transfer window/tab, CANT resize 1st column while other ones can
3. while opening magnet link, there is no association (doesn't read system values)
4. unable to save ANY site with its contents (css, js), but just plain/alone xHTML
5. most HTML-5 codecs are missing (check html5.com)


Missing:
1. would be nice to have a button that would add page/tab to speed dial (just like you can bookmark a page)
2. some internal crash log generator, as apparently Otter chooses to crash without any crash log or error or even system error for Event Viewer
3. right click on tab for: close tabs to left/right
4. when image is in web site, right click to open image in current tab

Otter Browser Forum / v166 bugs
on x64 (win 7), when removing a bookmark from the list of saved ones, Otter simply freezes and has to be forcefully killed
bookmark doesn't get removed

also, often otter doesn't apply "set zoom" from preferences, as in I put it on 126%, but randomly
when new tab button is pressed, or when toolbar buttons are added/removed (customization)
the zoom level goes back to 100%

also if you go to yahoo images and choose any from gallery, for some reason Otter doesn't
show preview in "slide mode" (when chosen), tho this could be more of javascript or qtweb related

Otter Browser Forum / nasty JS bug
this bug needed separate topic, as Emdek wanted it like that so others can comment and suggest fixes

the bug or a flaw is caused by simple title-bar-content refresh
what it does is, constant reading-writing to hard-disk and choking of Otter in performance
mind you, I only tested this on my "windows 7" (32bit)

code in question is this:

Code: [Select]

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
var txt="stupid rotating title - IT ROTATES AND CHOKES OTTER";
var wait=200;
var refresh=null;
function rotate_title() {
document.title=txt;
txt=txt.substring(1,txt.length)+txt.charAt(0);
refresh=setTimeout("rotate_title()",wait);}
rotate_title();
</script>


here is plain example within clean HTML file if you want to try:

Code: [Select]

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
var txt="stupid rotating title - IT ROTATES AND CHOKES OTTER";
var wait=200;
var refresh=null;
function rotate_title() {
document.title=txt;
txt=txt.substring(1,txt.length)+txt.charAt(0);
refresh=setTimeout("rotate_title()",wait);}
rotate_title();
</script>
</head>
<body>

Otter Browser Forum / bugs
okay I finnaly duped Pale Moon and replaced it with Otter
as this lil browser is so fast in script loadings and leaves such little memory footprint

BUT, i stumbled upon 1 problem, yeah yeah i know its hated, but on facebook
it always gives me "chat disconnected, check your internet connection", which shouldn't happen
so my question is WHY and how to enable it ?
i don't have anything blocking scripts in otter nor nothing under content blocking
i only use "do not track"

and 1 obvious bug,
otter doesn't remember default zoom level
mine is set to 130% in settings, but it always reverts to 100%

I'm using portable version 0.9.04 #49

is there a ways to have (at least for win32)
new otter "code"/version based on older qtwebkit ?

im verry annoyed that they don't fix flash plugin for so long time ...

hello
I really like how light and stable Otter became by now
and is close for everyday use, but I see on youtube that even if flash plugin works
but you can't use controls of player on Otter

whenever you click on any control, Otter will consider as "click on plugin" thus pause the video
