Netflix's Linux support is limited to Chrome and Firefox. To watch Netflix, you could:
Install Firefox from the AppCenter
Netflix now supports Firefox on Linux!
Install the chromium-widevine plugin
Chromium-widevine may not work properly on elementary; see this bug.
This should already be fixed now, but for the record, this was a YouTube bug that was triggered by a WebKit user agent quirk designed to make the old YouTube website work better. See https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=171603.
Answer pulled from here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/470040/how-to-customize-or-debug-ad-blocking-on-gnome-web-epiphany-browser
Gnome-web blocks ads on the basis of the URI of the element. The blocking is
done by the UriTester componant (source code). Like Adblock plus, the tester
loads a list of patterns from a list, and determine if a URI is ...
This is possible by setting an environment variable. Run it from the terminal like this:
$ WEBKIT_DISABLE_COMPOSITING_MODE=1 epiphany
See https://trac.webkit.org/wiki/EnvironmentVariables for other environment variables that you'll probably never want to use.
If this environment variable fixes your problem, then there's a good chance it's a bug in your ...
The "Oops! Unable to display this website" message occurs when the WebKit process displaying the webpage crashes. (This happens in a secondary process to ensure the main Epiphany process does not crash.) Crashes are always a bug that should be reported to the developers so they can try to fix it. Such issues are usually also security vulnerabilities that ...
Close your browsers and remove your flash installation
sudo apt purge --remove flashplugin-installer adobe-flashplugin
sudo apt autoremove
Now install pepperflash-plugin for Chromium and Firefox (works for all other browsers)
sudo apt install browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash
Go to http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
This was previously reported at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1480554
Parallels is probably missing some OpenGL extension expected by WebKit. If you want to debug this further, you're going to have to report a bug upstream, at https://bugs.webkit.org/. Prefix the bug title with [GTK] and select the 'WebKit Gtk' Bugzilla component to make sure ...
I suspect the other videos require the media source extensions API (MSE) in order for you to receive high-quality videos. WebKitGTK+, the web engine powering Epiphany, requires GStreamer 1.14.4 to enable MSE, but unfortunately elementary has an older version of GStreamer and is unlikely update it since it's part of the base system inherited from Ubuntu. Most ...
As of Epiphany 3.32 (maybe some earlier post-3.24 versions), you can edit the list of filter files using dconf-editor or gsettings
So, you should (haven't tested) be able to define a filter file with exceptions according to the AdBlock Plus syntax, upload it somewhere, and put the link in the adblock-filters setting.
You might even be able to get away with ...
This has been requested several times, but unfortunately it's not currently possible. https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/epiphany/issues/268 has been reported to add this functionality.
May 2019 edit: this will be possible in Epiphany 3.34 using the security popover that appears when you click the address bar lock icon; various website permissions will be ...
Looks like a hardware-specific issue, probably related to graphics drivers. I've seen several complaints about this, but nobody has reported a bug yet, and developers won't investigate without a bug report. So I would take this straight to WebKit Bugzilla, following the instructions for reporting web content bugs. You'll probably be asked to provide details ...
Check here, I understood what you need but I really don't know if that is the place you are looking for. Either way they should help you better
If it's crashing, then you should file a bug report with a quality backtrace so it can be investigated. Crash reports are much appreciated as long as they contain a good backtrace. Nobody can assist with your crash otherwise.
As for the hangs... unfortunately that is a known issue. It will be half-fixed in the forthcoming WebKitGTK 2.24.4 release, but the ...
There's no way to debug a crash without a stack trace, so you should first get a stack trace for the crash, with debug symbols for every frame in the trace. Once you have a stack trace, you can report it to the Epiphany developers. See these instructions for how to acquire a quality stacktrace. Unfortunately, this is a bit harder to do in elementary than in ...
Thanks for the answers, they were quite helpful. I'm adding another one that I just found, in case somebody else is looking for it too (e.g. future me):
There is a elementary OS tag in issues of the gitlab repository of Epiphany:
I always found Firefox to be unreasonably slow and resource demanding for basic web surfing: right now, it is using ten times the memory that Epiphany uses (I am looking at the system monitor with both browser open, same amount of tabs, same websites, Firefox sync disabled and the only Firefox extension I have is uBlock).
Firefox, while nowhere near as ...
The instructions you found for Arch are correct for modern versions of Epiphany, but Loki ships with Epiphany 3.18, which is old. Removing the path was good, but the schema ID also changed slightly. I think this should work:
gsettings set org.gnome.Epiphany user-agent 'Bunnies! Lots of bunnies in my user agent!'
You can delete Epiphany webapps completely from the browser, in the about:applications page. They also create a browser profile directory in ~/.config/epiphany in addition to the .desktop file, if you have manually removed the .desktop files take also a second to remove the profile dir.
No. I am not running either at the moment (And I usually run the latest packages from the daily PPA on top of the latest available Ubuntu version), but I can pretty much assure you they are different versions of the same browser.
Epiphany is being actively developed by the Gnome developers and thus you will find that there are many differences between the ...
