It would be nice if I could import bookmarks that are stored in a HTML file.

Bookmark import is only needed once. So including an import will not be included. Instead of it its possible to write an external program that can include external bookmarks to LW2.

That would be nice if one could be made for Windows.

Sorry. But thats not part of my project.
Perhaps you find someone else for this.

I think that there should be something that will protect them from being corrupted or losing their contents. The reason why I'm requesting this feature is because I've lost a couple of my bookmarks every now and then.

The bookmakrs are readed once when starting and written, on closing.
I don't see any possibility how they could get corrupted. Perhaps its an issue with your Filesystem?

Maybe. What about if it gets closed abruptly?

On crash the bookmarks are untouched. They stay the same as when started.

So, its an issue with my SD card then. Oh well. If it breaks later on, I'll get a better one.

When scrolling down the page with it showing, it gets displayed more than once in the page being displayed.

I know the problem, but currently i don't know any solution. (The progressbar will stay in the webarea as the link-hover-url)

in webview.cpp Line 32 and 38:
Change "this" to "parent".

Ok. mcobit changed those two lines and made a new PND which doesn't have this issue anymore.

What Qt version are you using?

I talked with an 4.6 user wich had no problems at all.

This happens on systems using Qt 4.7.1 and 4.7.2, one on i686 and the other on x64.
This is how I build it:

Ok. The crash seems to be a problem that is introduced with 4.7

Report

I found a way to reproduce the problem:
1. Let LW2 ask for a download
2. Say "save to..."
3. Select / as directory (Do not accept jet)
4. Abort the dialog.

I am working on a fix.
Thx for finding it.

The log says that you started a Download.
I tried both: no download and start download. In both cases i has no crash. I will look into the download code to hopefully see what could cause a crash.

Pressing CTRL while clicking on an image should either save that image in the default download location or ask the user where to save it.

Rightclick and "save image" already allows you to save an image.

Yes, I already knew about that way of saving images. I just like using the shortcut I mentioned becuase its easier to perform.

And i would need to whitebox the webkit mor than i did. So its unlikely that i will do it.
