I did

I made that change and still have to relog every time i close dillo and then open it again. Why is this?

Also, why can't i check my hotmail with Dillo? Does it not support something on that site yet?

Thanks,
Lance

most likely, there are several bug reports about cookies at the dillo site. don't know if they are going to implement any password management features.

I wouldn't change it to default accept. Just add

linuxquestions.org ACCEPT

under the DEFAULT DENY line. Though that won't help you any apparently, it'll keep other places from cookieing you in general.

All the same, Dillo's too wiggy to actually use yet, to me. For one, it complains about everything having wrong tags and then goes and renders right tags wrong. But someday this thing may *rock*.

ACCEPT
ACCEPT_SESSION

Accept means it permanently stores a cookie across brwoser "sessions". Session means it persists as long as you keep your browser open so a site doesn't keep re-cookieing you, but deletes it when you close.

Okay so ACCEPT

ACCEPT should then allways save those cookies, correct? So i can open a new dillo and go to the same website and not have to relog?

It seems either ACCEPT or ACCEPT_SESSION leaves me relogging very often.

Yeah... except Dillo's busted or I'm missing something. I just tried it and LQ wanted me to log in after I closed. I looked at my ~/.dillo/cookie file and it's writable, but empty. Crap. I don't know what to tell you now. That shoulda done it. *shrug* Oh well, I use Mozilla, anyway. Like I say, dillo seems like a real "work in progress" at the moment. Maybe try rshaw's original thing - the dillo guys say what I said should do it, but maybe you have to open it all the way up.

Any special reason you need dillo? If you want something fast, try w3m or links or lynx. Otherwise, I like my big Cadillac of web browsers.

I Like it for the same reason i like Blackbox

Both dillo and the WM are FAST! But that's not all. I'm not on an old computer or anything so speed is no problem. I just love the simplicity. I don't even know where to start with Mozilla, but with Dillo the doc. is simple and effective. There's nothing i don't need in Dillo. Same with Blackbox, simple and fast. For a newbie to Linux, it sure is nice to keep motivated when i can accomplish little things everyday like changing my menu for Blackbox, or changing some preferences for Dillo.

These little accomplished "goals" are what keep me going in Linux. Step by step i win!

Yeah, I'm with you on the light wm (fluxbox here) and the little accomplishments along the way. But I've been using Mozilla since 1.0 on Windows and it's "home" to me. If it came installed on your distro, all you need to do is run down the Edit>Preferences menu, really.

But wow - I just downloaded and compiled w3m for the hell of it. This version's got some changes. Try it out - for a console browser it's pretty freaking incredible. And fast. And it started out as a pager. *lol*

Anyway - good luck with the dillo cookie issues. I suspect it is some kind of bug. I don't know what to do beyond edit the files like the docs say are supposed to work.

My current 'project'.

X-mule. I want to get xmule to work. I finally installed it and everything fine, but when i run xmule i get a segmentation fault.

Quick question, how can i easily take what i see on the console and save it to a file for easy transfering online?

Thanks,
Lance

I just had to add a post with more about w3m. I'm surfing in console and LQ's tables are correctly rendered, the images are displayed inline, and it's even got *tabs* of sorts - a popup box of multiple windows. This just... wow... cool.

Wow. Synchronicity. You should just be able to pipe it through tee.

What do you mean pipe it through tee?

For instance, xmule | tee ?

I don't even know what tee is?
