General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=guenter] No that is normally typical for a browser that can not update his settings. First try: Make sure that the browser has writing rights in his profile folder, grant them manually if needed / or use the systems standart location for a new ./profiles folder. The K-Meleon installer has an option that is for setup on win 98/ME machines or for a portable setup. It makes that the profiles are in the program's install folder. XP and later do not like that and block writing access there. You can check the profiles location via Menue Edit/Configuration/Profile Directory. If it is in the K-Meleon install folder You can either grant rights for that folder to the current user of the browser or You delete the ./programs/k-meleon/profile.ini file so that the browser creates the profiles folder in the system default/standard location on the next start up. BTW: After it has created a new default profile You can copy the content of Your old profile there. Create backups first. This gives You all Your old passwords bookmarks etc. K-Meleon profiles from 1.5 are also compatible to 1.6 and can be re-used. Second try: Make sure that no security program puts K-Meleon into a sandbox. I had the later on a Win 7 PC where I let visitors access the Internet. Some smarty (probably me after updating the browser) clicked away a warning that the security program did not know this K-Meleon program and would place into the sandbox. Later all visitors complained that no new settings would stick. No new bookmarks, no change of home page... No idea what You have installed and must undo. If both tries fail You can install the browser on top of the old 1.6 folder. But You can do that also first for a try since that is done fast and easy. If all three tries fail I do not know or can not guess the reason for Your problem either.[/quote]
