Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I'm leaving luakit for dwb, so it's good to see commits happening once more! I've come across similar instability of late but will try the git repo.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Get "access denied" for the bugtracker, so I don't know if this is a known bug:
I've got 'single instance' enabled but if I open a link in claws-mail with 'dwb <url>' it opens a new instance with all my tabs and adds the new one. I expected, that it would just open a tab in the existing instance. For now I have to override instance in claws-mail with -n but it would be nice if this could be fixed eventually. (Or any tips if the mistake is somewhere in my configs or so)

(Also dwb freezes completely if I try to open a gitbucket repository. It's really annoing to go there to look for the bugtracker :)

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Mine kept crashing too on last dwb-git till I realized it wouldn't if adblock was off. Too bad for the adblocker...

I've got the same freeze on bitbucket.org. This seems webkit related however, as many (but not all?) webkit-based browsers have the same problem.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Yeah, the bitbucket thing has been around for a long time and I suspect that WebKit2Gtk does handle it, which would explain why some crash and some don't. (AFAIK all Gtk-based keyboard-driven browsers use WebKitGtk, not WebKit2Gtk)

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Just installed the new AUR dwb-git (dwb-git-2015.05.24.g5134b57) and it seems to be working again.  (Crosses fingers.)

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Yeah, I messed around until I managed to downgrade webkitgtk2 to 2.4.8-2. That seems to fix it. I just put it in IgnorePkg now.

(NOTE: I'm using the official repo dwb package, not dwb-git)

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Dwb seems to be having a rough time because of webkit even at dwb-git.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

FWIW, WebKitGTK 2.4.9 fixed a security issue (MITM), so it's not really a good idea IMHO to downgrade it.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hey all, I'm back on dwb with my new computer - but I'm seeing something very odd that I don't even know how to begin troubleshooting:  after some time of use (~5min) dwb starts 'swallowing' alt-tab key presses.  I use alt-tab to cycle through windows, and it works for a while after dwb is launched, then it starts being intercepted.  Dwb doesn't react to the key press, but I'll have to press alt-tab 3 times (and always exactly 3 times) before the keypress is recognized by the wm and I get cycled to the next window.

I don't have this issue in other windows or other browsers.  The first time it happened I suspected it was from a problematic website capturing input, but I've now seen this even when I browse only well-known scriptless/static sites.

I've confirmed this is completely independent of the websites I might visit, and it happens also with all the default configs.

EDIT: crap.  This is now happening on my home computer that uses firefox - though it happens much faster with dwb - but this doesn't seem to be a dwb issue.  But now I'm more stumped than every on what it could be as it is *only* browser windows (now on two computers with two different browsers).

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Since the last update dwb starts correctly but as soon as I enter an URL and hit 'Enter' to access it I get the following notification,

Received SIGSEGV, trying to clean up.

Last 32 stack frames:[...]

Segmentation fault

The same happens with whatever is entered into the direction bar (f.e. a search term in the browser's 'Settings' section and  after the related 'Enter' is pressed.

So far in my tests I have disabled the plugin-block option and it seems to have improved a bit. Though just a bit as it seems to just delay, for an unknown reason, the very same crash. The latter somehow intrinsically related to input made to the address bar.

Well, the old AUR PKGBUILDs are still there:

http://pkgbuild.com/git/aur-mirror.git/tree

(will lag your browser!!!)
So feel free to uplaod the dwb packages to the new git AUR.

you might as well;

Links goes pretty fast, but yes going to the correct one will speed up.
I just can't figure out how to upload to aur.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

What part isn't working, here's a simple approach:

git clone http://aur.archlinux.org/dwb-git.git
cd dwb-git
cp /path/to/PKGBUILD ./
cp /path/to/dwb.install ./
mksrcinfo
git add --all
git commit -m 'initial upload to aur4'
git push -u origin master

It sounds like you haven't uploaded your public key to your aur profile.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Thank you, Ambrevar! Now if only webkit wasn't as buggy as it is... I've reinstalled recently, and apart from being unable to use the adblocker (segfaults constantly, it's been reported before), I have the galloping RAM and CPU usage problem. What do you guys do to keep it from happening? Restarting the browser from time to time to clear memory?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Oh, it crashes on its own regularly, so I don't need to restart it sad
But more seriously, the problem is not webkit, but webkitgtk - there is qutebrowser that uses webkit-qt, and it seems to have less problems. But since I still prefer dwb, I'm a little unhappy.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I don't have any perf issues. The dreadful instability of webkitgtk, however, makes dwb hard to use these days...
Still looking for an alternative. Anything that is not dependency heavy (I'd prefer no Qt), keyboard driven, and versionable config+bookmarks.

Edit: And the one killer-feature, "spawn editor on form fields"! big_smile

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Dwb is simply unmaintained, and WebKitGTK+ is kind of outdated too. I've been playing with WebKit2GTK+ and it has never crashed on any webpage for me so far. The project can be revived by either updating it to work with the current version of WebKitGTK+ or porting it to WebKit2GTK+ but that's a LOT of work.

Please stop saying that it's solely WebKitGTK+'s fault (though WebKit2GTK+ seems to work a lot better), it's not like cinnamon, empathy, evolution and geary crash every five seconds and they also make use of it. Dwb just needs some love.
