Cookie Support Selects how HTTP cookies are handled (also see FAQ #7).
  • Enabled: full cross-session cookie support.

  • Disabled: no cookies are served.

  • Session-Fresh Only: serve only cookies received during the current browser session.
SSL Support Determines how Web sites secured with SSL (URLs starting with "https:") are handled.
  • SSL Enabled: full SSL support for visiting secure sites.

    This option is greyed out when the OpenSSL DLL files are not present.

  • SSL Disabled: no SSL support, can't visit secure sites.

  • Fake SSL: When this option is checked, "https:" URLs that normally require SSL connections will be accessed as if they were regular "http:" URLs. Some sites with "https:" addresses still allow access without an actual secure (encrypted) connection, and checking this option allows access to such sites. Examples are some WebMail systems, message boards etc. However, site that require a truly secure connection such as banks or brokerages cannot be accessed even when this option is checked.

    Note that this option does not establish a secure connection with "https:" sites, it simply establishes a normal connection with "https:" sites if they accept a normal connection.

Enable New Window Determines what happens when a clicked link includes a "TARGET=_blank" attribute.
  • Enabled: the link will be opened in a new, indepenent browser window.

  • Open in New Tab: the link will be opened in a new tab in the current browser window.

  • Disabled: the link will be opened in in the current browser window.

Enable External Players When this option is checked, downloaded binary files that require external players or editors (e.g. ZIP files, spreadsheets) will results in a dialog box offering to launch the external player for the file. When unchecked, only a download page with Save option is displayed.

Note that executables (*.EXE files) are never automatically launched, for safety reasons.

Enable Meta Refresh META REFRESH tags can cause the browser to reload the current page or to load a different page, immediately or after a time delay. When the option is checked, the browser honors such META REFRESH tags. Uncheck to disable reloading and redirection by META REFRESH tags.
Send Referrer Header By default this option is checked, causing an HTTP Referer (sic) header to be included in the request sent to the server for loading a new HTML page. This header identifies the 'referring page', the page from which you clicked the link that initiated the load.

Uncheck this option if you prefer to not reveal the referring page to the server.

Keep Forward History When this option is checked, all new entries are appended to the end of the history list, following any "forward" entries resulting from PageBack operations. When unchecked, the history list is maintained in a standard manner, meaning that hyperlinking after a PageBack operation removes the "forward" entries from the list.
Load Images When this option is checked, images load normally. Uncheck to ignore images.
Enable Image Animation When this option is checked, animated images play normally. Uncheck to freeze animated images.
Show NoFrames When this option is unchecked, FrameSet pages load normally. Check to ignore FRAMESET tags and display the NOFRAMES section, if present.
Show NoScript When this option is checked, NOSCRIPT sections are displayed normally. Uncheck to ignore any NOSCRIPT sections when browsing sites that erroneously repeat the NOSCRIPT content, typically resulting in the display of duplicate images.
