Please select the menu entry Help -> Configuration Information and then scroll to the Paths section.
When you add a bookmark from the star icon, it is automatically added to unsorted bookmarks folder.
You will find unsorted bookmarks only in the library
You can move the bookmark to other folder with the star icon or in the library.
At first, please check that you have installed the Qt SQLite plugin. On Debian, this package is called
If you have it installed and you are still experiencing this issue, please run QupZilla from a terminal window and have a look at the output.
If it contains something like
QSqlQuery::value: not positioned on a valid record QSqlQuery::value: not positioned on a valid record
it seems that your profile database is broken. You can check it by some SQLite database viewer. If the database is empty, then you can recover it by creating new profile.
If it doesn't help, please open an issue.
Well, the problem with using excessive amount of processor time is very likely caused by some flash content running in the browser (most likely bad coded advertisement). You have 3 options to solve this:
This feature has been added in version 1.0.0-rc1. If you are using older version, please upgrade it either by downloading installable packages from github or from your distributions repository.
Then you will find the Import Bookmarks option in Menu File -> Import Bookmarks... or in Bookmarks Manager. The importing wizard will then guide you through the importing process.
Note: The bookmarks backend will undergo various improvements for handling bookmarks. For more details look here, please.
It might help, if you change the user agent in QupZilla. Starting with QupZilla version 1.1.8 you will be able to do this in the preferences:
It is even possible to define a User Agent per site:
You have probably downloaded a tarball for another Linux distribution and executed QupZilla from it.
You need to move files from
/usr/share/qupzilla directory in the tarball to (probably)
/usr/share/qupzilla directory in your system.
The exact path can be found directly from QupZilla: Menu Help -> Informations about application -> Paths -> Data
After a restart of QupZilla, it should work.
If you are not using a tarball for another Linux distribution, please verify, that you did not forget to run make install.
You have to, obviously, run qupzilla.exe from command line. You will be able do it by following these steps:
cd C:\\Program Files\QupZilla
qupzilla.exe 1> output.txt 2>&1and output will be then written into output.txt file
I assume you are using Linux and have gdb installed:
At first, you will have to build QupZilla with debugging symbols. For this, please add
CONFIG += debug into the src/defines.pri file.
Then start a debugging session:
You will get into gdb prompt. Type:
QupZilla should be running now. Make the steps to reproduce the crash and gdb will inform you about that. Now type:
and you have a backtrace of the crash that you can paste into your issue.
Starting with version 1.3.0 QupZilla is able to generate a backtrace and to save it into a file when QupZilla crashes. You will find this file in
However, this will only work, if QupZilla has been compiled with DEBUG support and with the GNU project debugger (gdb) installed. Please consult the documentation of your distribution.
Note: Please remove
# characters from your backtrace when you are pasting it into issue. Otherwise, you would reference issues with number following after
The best way to send backtraces would be to upload them at gist
There is problem with raster graphics system on FreeBSD with (probably) NVIDIA drivers.
You can workaround it by running QupZilla with the native graphics system:
qupzilla -graphicssystem native
Please note, that running QupZilla with the native graphics system is very slow.
To fix this issue, you have to set 3 sysctls:
kern.ipc.shmmax=67108864 kern.ipc.shmall=32768 kern.ipc.shm_allow_removed=1
You can do it by
sysctl kern.ipc.shmmax=67108864 sysctl kern.ipc.shmall=32768 sysctl kern.ipc.shm_allow_removed=1
The QtNetwork stack (unlike other browsers network stacks), which is a part of the Qt Framework, does not support a fallback from the TLSv1 handshake to SSLv3. Thus, if a specific server does not understand the TLSv1 handshake, QupZilla is not able to load this specific website. To allow QupZilla to overcome this issue, it uses list of known non-working servers and automatically sets SSLv3 as handshaking protocol for them.
Starting with version 1.6.3 non-working servers can be added by the user to QupZillas configuration file
settings.ini, which is located in the profile directory.
If you find a specific https:// website, that might be affected by this issue, close QupZilla and open the configuration file with an editor of your choice. Go to the section
[Web-Browser-Settings] and look for the parameter
SSLv3Sites=. Per default the following servers are included:
centrum.sk, centrum.cz, oneaccount.com, hdi.de, live.com, i0.cz, sermepa.es
Just add this specific website to this section, save the configuration file and you're done!
