Hi Folks:

I would like to know where I would configure browser settings for the user on a Sage server.

I built a Sage server for students to use at school (Sage 5.9 on Ubuntu Server 12.04.2 x64). While building the system, I was comparing the browser behavior (using Firefox 21.0 w/ Java Platform SE 7 & Deployment Toolkit) to the public Sage server at sagenb.org (Sage 5.4). I noticed a couple of differences: First, when a new worksheet is made, the sagenb.org site displays the new worksheet in the same tab whereas the home-built server opens another tab for the worksheet. Second, when a plot is created, the sagenb.org site automatically renders it interactively whereas the home-built server renders a static image first with an interactive button.

Are these differences a result of different Sage versions? Are there other settings? Can these setting be changed? If so, where are they located and are they documented? Thanks!

Have a GREAT DAY!!

Shaun

To a large extent, this is because (for some reason probably related to the maintainer of sagenb.org now spending time on cloud.sagemath.org) sagenb.org hasn't been upgraded for a while. Certainly the plot issue is directly because of this. (This is a feature, actually, though arguably not a very popular one - it avoids some crashing in certain browsers on certain OSes.)
