can't save custom cache size

I'm running Slimjet on Ubuntu 14.04, which is installed on a SSD. I've read that browser performance can be improved (or be better for the SSD) by disabling the cache. So I went into the settings and selected "custom cache size", and entered the value of "0". I restarted SJ, but when I checked the s...

Re: site display issues

It's working since I upgraded! (I'm using all the previous extensions and bookmarks) Now using: Version 12.0.11.0 A few seconds before the upgrade I tried the problem website and it didn't work, but a minute later, with the new upgrade, all was as it should be. So, either the bug was fixed, or the u...

site display issues

I really like SlimJet. But one of the sites is not working well with SJ, and it is a website that I use regularly. I tried deleting cookies and cache. I tried disabling all extensions. I tried reinstalling SJ. I read what I could find on this forum re this problem. EG http://www.sl imjet.com/en/foru...

How to improve pepper flashplayer video playback

I have made sure that my pepper flashplayer is up-to-date, but I'm having problems with the video (on all websites) being choppy/jerky (at 3.7mbps). I'm using 64-bit slimjet on Xubuntu 16.04-1. Are there any suggestions on how to improve this... I've read many reports of this and the alternatives ar...

Re: SlimJet starts VERY slow

It appears that this is a bug between Ubuntu 15.10 and Chrome, Chromium, Slimjet (and all derivatives). This is why I determined this: I installed Chromium (first install -- no extensions, etc) -- it also starts slow. I had Firefox installed w/ addons -- it starts in a few seconds. I installed Chrom...

SlimJet starts VERY slow

Before I pronounce this "a bug", I'd like to see if I can fix this on my own... I am running SJ under Lubuntu 15.10 on a AMD x2 3.9Ghz w/ SSD. Currently, when I start SlimJet, it takes about 15-20 sec to start!! -- about a week or 10 days ago it would start in about 1 second. I've tried disabling th...

Re: "back"/"forward" icon in toolbar

I didn't realize it was such a big coding change to tweak this ... And, as I've mentioned, this color issue exists in many of the themes, and I don't have the intention of asking all the authors to change their themes whenever I decide to change themes -- especially when they look fine in chrome, ch...

Re: "back"/"forward" icon in toolbar

Take a look at the attachment, and see how different the contrast is, between the arrows on Chrome and the arrows on SlimJet (same theme). It's NOT an issue with the theme author.

Re: can't make slimjet default browser

Yes Slimjet supports Linux distros. Do you have 32bit or 64bit Linux and browser? I have both installed, but the one with Lubuntu 15.10 is the 64bit. (the other is installed on Puppy Linux (TahrPup) -- which I suspect you don't support because there are issues that require additional tweaking to ge...

Re: "back"/"forward" icon in toolbar

Here are some themes that don't work well with SlimJet's back/forward arrows: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/autumn-theme/emaabncbljhklhnpoicohcejdmpjdgbo?hl=en-GB (only very slight color change... not really noticeable) https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/breaking-bad-theme/hpffjac...
