[quote=SlugFiller] [quote=desga2]Are you try to setting K-Meleon as default browser? Almost about: is a protocol not used out of Mozilla browsers. Work your step to about: protocol links in Firefox? You can try to set K-Meleon default browser in Preferences (F2) -> "Set As Default Browser ..." button or with this extension [url=http://kmext.sourceforge.net/ext7.htm]Defaulter[/url][/quote] IE6 intercepts and handles "about:" protocol just fine. It relays the requests to "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSHTML.DLL" or "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SHDOCLC.DLL". Setting K-Meleon as default browser sets http and https, but not about. [quote=disrupted]what's the point of registering the "about" protocol? it's an internal protocol called from within..[/quote] Well, try "Start->Run...->about:blank", and you'll get your default browser to open (assuming it's set up okay). Or, how about having a shortcut to "about:config" on your desktop? Since Windows allows link shortcuts, this could be very handy. Unfortunately, K-Meleon doesn't do this by default, but it can be done manually, as mentioned above. [quote=siria]It may help to dig a little deeper and try a bit harder, and suddenly some things aren't quite as "impossible" as you claim so quickly here.[/quote] I did go through the entire list and all tabs accessible through F2 before making my post. Having to track down a text file to edit is a tad "linux", but without the "man" page to tell you where said file is. [quote=siria]But if you want to stick with this browser, you'll have to live with it having about a thousand times less man power than the big ones, and therefore less features and gimmicks[/quote] Not looking for gimmicks. Not trying to write oversized macros which surf the web for me. Just trying to configure some basic controls. Or, more importantly, unconfigure some. Besides, I can't help but wonder why easy configuration is available for some controls (e.g. Bookmarks, URL bar), but not for others (Tabs and links). How difficult could it be to just copy the same UI around? [quote=siria]I'm already very glad to have an ALMOST perfect-for-me browser[/quote] Quite frankly, I'm just glad to have a browser which had tabs [i]and[/i] opens pages [i]and[/i] runs on Windows. To my knowledge, K-Meleon is the [i]only[/i] browser which fits this description. Well, I've finally managed to take care of double-click by setting "kmeleon.tabs.OnDoubleClick" to "-1" in "about:config", I can only hope this preference sticks. Now all that remains is to get new bookmark tabs to open as last, while keeping link tabs opening as next. Unfortunately, there's no ID_OPEN_LINK_IN_BACKGROUNDTAB_LAST, so I guess I'll have to just live with it the way it is.[/quote]
