Hello, my Midori browser does not seem to have javascript functionality. It's been a while
since I have used the cubiebord, so I just did an apt-get upgrade and install (took a while).
However Midori still has no javascript.

According to this page:

there is a package called libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-0, which Midori depends on.
It just occurred to me that I have not checked if that package is installed.. sorry,
I'll do that now.

Any thoughts on other things I can check? Or Other browsers I could try? Apparently
Chrome is not available for armhf, and I'm not sure about Firefox. I'm hesitant to
try it, because on my x86 laptop Firefox uses a lot of memory (up to 1Gig), and the cubieboard
only has 1 gig of memory.

Thank you!

PS My laptop just died and the cubieboard is the only way to get on the internet.
However I can't seem to log in to anywhere because of lack of javascript. So thank
you for having a registration and login process that does not mandate javascript!

PS The javascript package does show up as installed:

:~$ dpkg -s libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-0
