  • Ads still show up with adblock enabled
    Does :version show adblock being installed? Note that cosmetic filtering isn't supported, so only ads being blockable by blocking network requests will be blocked.
  • Should I use virtualenv for installing pip packages?
    For example, I install ranger, qutebrowser or jupyterlab using pip, is it necessary to use virtualenv?
  • SOCKS5/HTTP proxy with auth, but username is an email?
    Done: doc: Clarify SOCKS auth support · qutebrowser/[email protected]
  • Does Qutebrowser have SponsorBlock support?
    Not directly in qutebrowser, but you can easily open YouTube videos in mpv (see 10. in the FAQ), where various people seem to have written SponsorBlock integrations:
  • How do I put spaces in a bookmark name?
    The main difference is that you can open quickmarks with e.g. :open /r/qb directly, but not bookmarks. There are plans to unify the two, though.
  • How to import bookmarks
    The importer.py script will help you with that.
  • [Gmail] Couldn't sign you in because this browser or app may not be secure?
    For some context, see https://github.com/qutebrowser/qutebrowser/issues/5182
  • Looking for a greasemonkey script for qutebrowser
    I got it to work for the next release: Improve some Greasemonkey API stubs by The-Compiler · Pull Request #6699 · qutebrowser/qutebrowser
  • disable video playing completely?
    I don't think this is possible for qutebrowser to do, unfortunately. What it could do is providing settings to block media network requests, but that won't work on e.g. YouTube with custom video players. Also I suppose it might affect more media as well.
  • Beginner to Qutebrowser here! How do I setup Qutebrowser for daily use?
    Ideally, by upgrading to qutebrowser v2.3.1 which has an updated workaround for this issue.
    Yes, there is a userscript available to do just that. This is a script that is written by a user and in this case has been accepted into Qutebrowser's repository. On other words: unless the package-maintaner of your distro has stripped it it should already be installed with qutebrowser. You just want to add a few keybindings to make it easier to use.
  • There are some issues that should be fix
    I did not. Someone contributed it, and it seemed like an useful thing to have. Mind you, I never said "qutebrowser doesn't need a :cookies-clear command". I said "nobody implemented it yet" and gave you a way to do what you want based on what's available right now. If you don't want to use that workaround "because it's for developers", that's on you.
  • Adding webpages in the conf
    See point 10 in the FAQ. It's about mpv, but I suppose VLC will work in a very similar way.
