[quote=SoerenB] Would it be possible to offer an additional download version as listed below? Because: It seems to be hard for some newbies to K-Meleon to follow the instructions given here by others. The last resort of many sharing their knowledge here, then, is to "create a new profile", without regard to changes the advised may have made - mostly unknowingly - to files in the K-M [u]Program Folder[/u]. Many Windows users do not realize easily how to avoid creating a "profile.ini.txt" instead of a profile.ini. Many newbies suspect the Browser, their OS, or malware as the culprits for bugs in their K-M installations. With K-Meleon, it would be easy - and much less taxing for both parties - to convince them that neither is the case, by offering the following download: [list] [*] a zipped basic K-Meleon installation (can be handled by Windows natively) [*] portable (profile.ini included, need not touch their previous installation) [*] with the instruction to unzip to their Desktops (no writinRights issues) [*] without the loader [*] without the defaulter [*] without AdBlockPlus, for a start, and the advice to install that only after having installed & tested their other extensions - [u]see note below[/u]. [*] with an extra read me on HowTo transform that into a proper local installation as soon as it is complete & satisfying. (I'd volunteer for that, and I think I have a reference now to prove I can do this kind of thing - see [url=http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?1,106073,106102#msg-106102]my post on Sessions/Groups/Nicks[/url] [/list] Now, the [b][u]NOTE[/u][/b] concerning [b][u]AdBlockPlus[/u][/b], an extension which I value highly, and without which I personally would not like browsing for long... but: [quote=Uninstalling Adblock Plus] from [url=https://adblockplus.org/en/kmeleon]The AdBlockPlus K-Meleon Page[/url] Note that deactivating Adblock Plus plugin will only remove it from the user interface, usually the extension will continue blocking in the background. To uninstall Adblock Plus you need to [u]remove all the files[/u] you installed with the ZIP package. [/quote] (btw: this does not even mention the case that a user instructed to deactivate the plugin deactivates the macro only, instead) (btw2: can we be sure there's no other extension staying active in the background after deactivating?)[/quote]
