The region in your link shows with the next version, which uses gecko1.9 engine:
K-Meleon 1.6
It's in the download section, but unfortunately only in alpha version at this moment, sorry :-/

All this web services work fine to me with default config in K-Meleon 1.5.4.
Only you can have problems with BING maps.
But BING and Yahoo use Navteq maps, you can use Navteq maps from his home website without problems.
Try to update your Flash plugin.

K-Meleon in Spanish

Geo location is not implemented in GRE 1.8, used by current K-Meleon 1.5.x.

The maps are intentionally crippled for several browsers e.g. K-Meleon 1.5.x by the 2 providers. You can use original map provider's service (cf. desga2's post).

Setting the useragent string to:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3

fixes the problems with the map sites such as google (including google earth) & yahoo & probably bing too.

However, it does not solve problems which require the new gecko engine 1.9
