Try running in a full screen session. I get a sys1804, can't find file brun30p. Perhaps some type of basic language runtime?

Hi Lars, I'll see if Mozilla still builds here. Have to restore from a backup and my first try was the wrong one.
Stupid Intel USB3 is slow, 3 hours to restore the tree, currently going at 2.4 MB/S, maxes out around 6. The addon USB3 card I had max out at about a 100 MB/S. Speed is just about as slow under Linux too.

Hi Pete, my system was busy at the time so just assumed it was the same bug. I was looking for the one that fixed our problem, which IIRC, I only saw referenced as being fixed. The problem was partially Gimp producing broken GIF's that triggered the animation even though not animated, or might have been one frame.

Generally 1 GB is fine for OS/2, things like Firefox and OpenOffice and some Qt apps might not be happy and running them together will swap.
I started out with Warp V3 on a 4MB system, without the WPS loaded it was mostly fine and going to 16MB was wonderful

FTR, hard coding "9.WarpSans" as a font for DBCS systems makes no sense whatsoever and I can't imagine any useful thing that doing so could ever have accomplished.

FWIW, if there's something I can usefully test on a DBCS system (TW or otherwise), let me know.

Well, what happens if a SBCS locale such as en_CA is dropped on an object such as the screensavers properties page, on a DBCS system?
I know doing it the other way results in still showing English on pages 1 and 2 and some of the modules on page 3 with the rest showing various characters. Perhaps bad translation? Perhaps you could check on a DBCS system how zh_TW looks.
Notice the Cairo Clock is missing the glyphs to display the month as well with zh_TW on a Canadian system, perhaps should be using a different font there, or somehow it could be like the POSIX locale, currently displays 23/12/08 instead of, for en_CA, Fri Dec 08, 2023.
Edit: BTW, zh_TW has 10.System Proportional Combined hard coded

OK, I usually have scripting on OS2World turned off. It does seem like the gif bug. See and, with better examples,
Thing is we don't have the a refresh driver (idea is only draw during refresh cycles) and fake it, which is what that preference is about and why it is much worse on our platform.
The usual workaround for sites that we can control is to change the gifs to pngs. I did that for a bunch of sm/ff theme gifs. Not all gifs cause the problem and it may well be one frame animated gifs or our bug is different. One way to test is to load each gif one by one to see which produces the high CPU load.
The refresh driver was introduced with 45esr. delayed/choppy response the gif bug

Hi Pete, try going to about:config and changing layout.frame_rate. Try 1, -1 and large numbers. IIRC, have to restart between changes.
Did you say you are using no-script? Do you have os2world scripting disabled?

Actually it is simpler then I first thought as it is only the WPS msg files (one for each language) that need changing. Not sure why Doodle hard coded the font.
Confirmed. I just replaced "9.WarpSans" with "" in all ss_es.txt PG*_FONT strings, and the DSS notebook tabs resize along with everything else now. (Edit: Re: the hard-coded font it might be related to DBCS support IIRC.)

Yea, at the bottom of the txt files is, (now commented out)
Code: [Select]
// Font to use (for DBCS support)
// MOD_0007="9.WarpSans";
Which without access to a DBCS system, I'm not sure about.
Here's all the language stuff for the properties notebook, note that I started upgrading the help again, will need translating, diff enclosed. I've already removed the 9.Warpsans from the language files.
To create a msg file, "msgc.exe ss_es.txt" for example.

Hi Martin, hope you had a good trip. I don't think it is a GIF issue that Pete is experiencing. For me things are low CPU. Unluckily SeaMonkey and Firefox seem to get stuck using a lot of CPU occasionally.

Here, the CPU metre calms down to one CPU using about 1-2% after some seconds, about 5% typing this. Try doing a CTRL-F5 to force a reload of the page, perhaps both logged in and logged out. If that doesn't work, it may be a profile problem.
I've had similar now and again, never tracked it down to a particular page, might have been OS2World, the only fix that I found was reverting to an older profile from before the CPU usage thing hit. One of the reasons I use session manager add-on.
I have discovered with the Mozilla apps, it is important not to shut them down while they're busy.

How about using 7z? How big is the zip? Looks like about 7.2 MB limit here

Pete, try right clicking on the page, choose "View Page Info", it takes a while of 100% cpu to open the page info thingy, choose the media tab, and click the "Block images from" tickbox and see if that fixes the high CPU load.
Then untick it and see if CPU load stays low. Weirdly enough it does stay low here.
There's 7 GIF's, have to test them individually.

I was noticing similar yesterday (currently on Linux). Wonder if it is another GIF causing the CPU problem.

Ok, I build the dictionaries and set one dictionary to use.
I tried again to loging to os2world, first form (userid) was ok but as soon I click in the psw field, the page failes ! (replaced by a full grey page and have to reload it to get back)

Try, with Dooble closed, renaming %HOME%\.dooble and retry. Logging into OS2World works fine for me, just doesn't stay logged in after closing the browser, a cookie problem I assume.

Something else to add to the readme. @unixroot\usr\lib\qt5\bin\qwebengine_convert_dict.exe will convert the myspell dictionaries. Run with no parameters to see how to use.
I had no problem logging on here with Dooble and posting this shows lots of words such as Dooble that aren't in the dictionary. Perhaps something wrong with your profile or the bdic dictionary is broken.
The suppr, or delete key not working is a known Qt issue.
