Squid 2.7.8



  • Somehow when i click on the "Currently Viewing" drop down menu it's not directing me to the next page.  Is something wrong?  I'm also using squidguard and somehow some of the site i chose to block are not being block.  Please advise thank you.



  • As for the drop down box, are you using IE? Try Firefox..
    If you just re-installed Squid, squidGuard also has to be re-installed otherwise it will be broken.



  • humm … i haven't tried firefox yet.  I was using IE8 and i didn't know if that was causing the problem so i'll try firefox once i get home from work and let you know.  Thanks.



  • Same problem here. On IE8 the squid menu doesn't work. With Firefox it works perfect…



  • Same problem here. I use google chrome and it has always worked… untill I updated to 1.2.3-Release.... now I cannot access the menu from squid anymore. It only displays the dropdown, which doesn't work...

    //edit: doesn't work with IE7 nor IE8 either and I'm not installing firefox for this!

    Why not?(!) It is more or less on technical merits the best browser anyway.. You could dump in a portable version too if you don't want to "install" it.

    Install Opera then :-)

    The problem seems to be the drop-down navigation, but that only happens when there are too many tabs to fit on a single row, which is rare for packages. It happens to squid due to its many tabs with long titles.

    If you're feeling brave, here is the commit that implemented the switch to the drop-down list, you could edit the file and increase the limit.

  • Maybe the maintainer of the squid-package will short the menu to get it back again in tabs? I did a manually edit of the corresponding squid*.xml-files in /usr/local/pkg.
    There were previous posts about it, but i didn't find them…

    The problem is general, looks as if only firefox and opera show this right, no other browser does it. (None of the manufacturer browsers...)

    Cause I'm not installing firefox for one webpage… besides, this is 2009, okay okay, almost 2010, whatever :p. There shoudn't be a difference between browsers anymore. Meaning: every website should work on any browser out there. That's why we have standards... Developers should know that. I don't like IE, but it works perfectly in a Active Directory environment. I like Chrome, for the same reasons. I don't like firefox because it's not compatible with GPO's. Can't talk about Opera, haven't used it.

    Using the portable version is not really installing, you simply add a folder somwehere, to desktop or whatever and run the .exe directly.
    I know a number of people using mostly portable apps for anything, like Truecrypt, GIMP, OO, Thunderbird, DVD burning, ripping, data recovery, torrents, 7zip and numerous apps and tools. Having a USB flash loaded with portable apps is a useful thingy anyway.

    I downloaded the portable version. Indeed the dropdown list now works. Still, I do not agree that I need to use firefox for a very simple dropdown list…



  • It's a known problem with other browsers, we'll get it fixed (there is a bug ticket open).

    Thanks m8, really appreciate that!

    I changed the squid package last night and shortened all of the tab names so they should fit back into tabs now, and won't trigger the drop-down navigation.

    If you reinstall the package it should pick up the change.
