Gnome Web (Epiphany) Problems


I'm running Mint 18.1 with Cinnamon 3.2.7 Downloaded and installed Gnome's Web browser. Two issues:

- Preferences doesn't show me anywhere to enter the address for a different start page when Web is loaded. It always starts on the last web page visited.

- I downloaded and saved a different theme but when I select it in the text editor and click Save, I can't get it to stick and take effect.

Help appreciated. Thanks.

You have the choice to either let the browser start where it was terminated or not. That's all.

It's a bug

Thank for the reply. Where can I make the choice about which page the browser starts on? I don't see anything in Preferences that gives me that option.

The bug was reported in Feb-17. Still not fixed?

But your earlier post said that there was a choice: either start where Web terminated in its last session or not. Where is that?
