Hi, you should check your webkit2gtk version if it was installed using
the package manager (for archlinux: pacman -Qi webkit2gtk).
On webkit2gtk versions above 2.36.6 there is a bug which causes all
kinds of problems in surf
If you are on the affected versions, you should try and either remove
the webkit library as described in the thread above, or downgrade to a
previous version of webkit2gtk, which you can find here (for archlinux): and see if your
problem would go away.
