[quote=SlugFiller] [quote=siria]Since nothing at the opened browser will be in any way different from having it opened like everyone else does, by a normal program link or a real document link.[/quote] A normal program link to K-Meleon would open the homepage, not "about:blank". You could set the homepage to "about:blank", but you can't set it to both that and, say, "about:config" at the same time. Besides, think, why do you need a "default handler" for "http" at all? All it does is determine which browser opens links from your harddrive, and, by your argument, they are not needed. Except that some people do like to set links on their harddrive. And they don't want to go through the trouble of setting a full program link with the necessary command line, they just want to drag and drop the link from the browser to an open folder, which does the trick for creating a link. Also, generic links are more tolerant to default browser switching (e.g. switching from FireFox to K-Meleon), so you don't have to remake them every time you switch browsers. Then there's the possibility of starting any page from "Start->Run" without having to type the full path to the browser's executable. Sure, you could first start the browser, the click on the address bar, and only then input the URL, but why not one-step the thing with good old Win+R -> Type address -> Enter? If all of this is not convincing, then you might as well pull out the "Set as default browser" from the program altogether, but then people use that one, don't they? [quote=siria]Only the F2 prefs? Why did you not use the other configuration links? For example the one called "Browser Configuration".[/quote] Well, because they are not documented, and do not carry descriptions? I mean, I can only guess what setting "accessibility.tabfocus" to "7" does, or how it differs from setting it to "6" or "8". Also, there's the fact that it gives you a big "Do not touch this" warning when you open it. Besides you can't deny that the workaround I found is just that, a workaround, i.e. not a solution. It is pure coincidence that it resulted in the desired behavior, it could have just as easily caused the browser to crash. In fact, in a future version, it may just cause the browser to crash. So unless we're working under the assumption that I'm never going to upgrade to newer releases, this does not qualify as a valid permanent solution. [quote=desga2]If you like open bookmarks at last and links at next you can make a macro to open links that switch the pref kmeleon.tabs.onOpenOption between values 0 and 1.[/quote] I don't know if that's crazy or brilliant, but it sounds like it could actually work. I guess I'll try that.[/quote]
