General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=Peabody] Some additional info: The problem is not related solely to DOC files. After posting I noticed that K-M refused to use an alternate program for DOC, RTF, XLS, and PPT files. I prefer to use the viewer programs for these mime types because then macros cannot execute. I have configured K-M to use the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint Viewers rather than the native programs. As I mentioned, if I enable Always Ask then K-M refuses to use the alternate programs. If I disable Always Ask then K-M uses the alternate programs. I tested thoroughly in Firefox and FF always asks and if I select the Open option, FF uses the alternate programs rather than the default program. I copied the FF mimetypes.rdf and that made no difference. K-M will not use an alternate program if I select Always Ask. As a final test I tried other mime types and configured for an alternate program. I then noticed that K-M is consistent, regardless of the file type. If I configure K-M for an alternate program other than the default, AND enable Always Ask, K-M refuses to honor the alternate program selection. Disable the Always Ask and K-M then uses the alternate program. Or, if I use the default program and enable Always Ask, then K-M will indeed ask. I have tested this thoroughly and this seems like a bug. K-M simply refuses to use an alternate program AND Always Ask. I'd be grateful if anybody can confirm this and help. Thanks.[/quote]
