Download: arcticfox-27.9.18a1-ubuntu10.04-powerpc.tar.bz2

For Ubuntu 10.04: You need to install the GCC 4.8 and the libatomic1 via the repository 'ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test'.

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install gcc-4.8 g++-4.8
For Ubuntu 12.04: You need the libatomic1 package. Download: libatomic-ubuntu12.04-powerpc.tar.bz2

Please copy the file 'libatomic.so.1' to '/usr/lib/powerpc-linux-gnu/' with the following command:

Sorry to hear that. New Moon is so much friendlier than Arctic Fox for the most part. I'll try to figure out a way to record the bad URL's. They tend to over-fill the address line, and of course they disappear along with the browser. Today clicking subcatergories in Amazon have been the problem. Maybe the Print Screen button...

New Moon takes me to my Amazon page, logged in, when I look up something like external floppy controllers. Arctic Fox takes me to Amazon UK!

Tested this one... No other issues so far than the old problem with "Bookmarks Toolbar" which does not show bookmark menus. Is it already known what is causing this, and is there hope for a fix?

Hi Roland,

Thank you for testing the alpha1 of Arctic Fox 27.9.18. You can ask the developer of Arctic Fox because of the bookmark issue in the following thread:

Arctic Fox web browser for 10.6 (32 & 64-bit) — forums.macrumors.com

Thanks,
Christian

This note from Casey made me decide to use Arctic Fox instead of New Moon as much as possible. I had already found that Arctic Fox had begun working pretty well in Ubuntu, better than New Moon in at least one respect (video color), and the bookmarks had started working, and it knew who I was well enough not to always send me through that long, painful Capcha routine.

This had not been the case at all in Fienix, but to my astonishment it started to work right here, too. I'm hoping that the next time I come to Hyperion I might not even have to log on (I had to today).

There are exceptions. I've been using a language-learning app called Duolingo, lately "testing out" of the Korean lessons. When asked to translate, the app often provides tiles with the needed words on them. When you click a tile, it is supposed to go to a line above, but with Arctic Fox, the selected tiles jump behind the unselected ones. I can live with that although if told I made a mistake I can't see what I wrote so I can do better next time.

One problem I can't get around in Arctic Fox, possibly related to the browser-killing one mentioned above (that one hasn't happened lately), is clicking a link and ending up with a blank page. I have saved two examples, below, of such links. I wonder if their length has anything to do with the problem? It occurs in both Fienix and Ubuntu

My solution, so far, is to open New Moon on one of the other three desk tops and copy the URL over to it. They open immediately there.

I took a look at Arctic Fox Bug Report but came away with no idea how I would report this.

When you know a link causes the browser to fail, right click on the link and click on "Copy Link Location". This will copy the URL so you can paste it to report that it doesn't work.
Please try using SpiderWeb. It is built on the same technology as New Moon.

Hi Christian,
Do you know if there is a change log? I didn't see one on the SpiderWeb github.

Christian / All,
Could you please try installing Greasemonkey 3.10 with SpiderWeb? It seems to install for me, but scripts like ViewTube will not install. When I try to do so the dialog window appears, but clicking "Install" does nothing.
