Dear all,

I installed latest stretch-backports version of surf, but when I try to open local html file I get following error (on terminal):

$ surf -t info.html

(surf:2672): GLib-GObject-WARNING
**: /build/glib2.0-YYXhFA/glib2.0-2.50.3/./gobject/gsignal.c:2523:
signal 'web-process-terminated' is invalid for instance '0x13882f0' of
type 'WebKitWebView'

(the surf screen):

Error opening file /home/user/info.html: Permission denied

The version installed is:

$ apt -t stretch-backports search surf
surf/stretch-backports,now 2.0+git20181009-1~bpo9+2 i386 [installed]

I noticed this recently after some upgrade of the system components. Before that loading local files was allowed. I have read permission to the folder and file which I try to load to surf.

Any ideas why this happen?
