Here is a Data loss/bookmarks loss bug with K-Meleon 0.82. I originally got this upon new installation over an existing K-Meleon installation. These are steps to reproduce the same situation and bug after an installation.
1)Make sure no web browser is running
2)Make K-Meleon point to a non-existing bookmark file, editing prefs.js.
- point to bookmarksxxx.html or some other non-existing file.
Alert: "Your existing booksmarks file cannot be found, would you like to
locate this file now?"
(Press no to create a new bookmarks file)
5)Cancel the open dialog
Alert: "K-Meleon will create a new, empty bookmark file for you"
6)Hit OK button
7)Go to Bookmarks menu / config
The Netscape Bookmark Settings dialog displays.
8)Click the "..." button to select this file:
C:\<path>\<Mozilla_profile>\bookmarks.html. This should direct K-Meleon
to use this already-existing bookmarks file for its bookmarks.
9)Click OK on Netscape Bookmarks Settings dialog
10)Click on Bookmarks menu
Existing bookmarks from the just-selected Mozilla bookmarks.html file display
in the Bookmarks menu.
No bookmarks appear at all.
11)Go to Bookmarks menu / Add. This places the current page in the bookmarks
menu. I believe this is the action that does the data-loss bookmark file
14)Open bookmarks menu.
Mozilla bookmarks appear, untouched. There was no warning that any file would
be deleted or overwritten, so there is no reason to believe these bookmarks
would be gone.
Bookmarks menu lost all mozilla bookmarks, only the one I added in
K-Meleon is present
This problem would be greatly lessened if K-Meleon at least preserved files as file.bak via copying files to file.bak before overwriting or creating any new data files.
