    Hi all, i installed morphos yesterday and trying it out before i buy the full version.i seem to be hacing a problem. sometimes i open a folder that i know has a file in it and it just shows a blank folder as if it was empty. i also seem to have some websites loading but shows nothing using owb. any ideas why its doing this. i have a powerbook g4 with 512mb memory. i have ordered 2gb . could this be a memory issue?

    thanks in advance

    This is the default view: you can only see the files which has an icon (a file with same name but .info extension)
    There is a pullDown on top right corner, where you can select, what you want to see. You can select all Files, and every file will appear. You can save this setting if the folder has icon.

    Most likely no (OWB would rather crash if it ran out of mem, but to be sure you could activate the memory gauge screenbar - Right click on a depth gadget in upper right corner of the desktop screen and choose a "Memory" module - that will show your used/free memory on the main bar). Can you please share a link of a problematic website?

    EDIT: Oh, and you should probably read some first step guide if you're not really used to Amiga-ish operating systems.

    Do you happen to have content blocking (adblock) enabled? It can give empty pages if it happens to filter the whole address.. has happened few times for me. You can check it from Settings->Preferences->Content->Content blocking.

    But yeah, you'll notice for sure if you run out of memory, so that's not the case... but that 512M is also quite little for modern browsing, you'll be much happier with the 2GB otherwise.

    And I'd recommend the Getting Started guide for beginners too :)
