Hi Mike,
Edit > Preferences (F2) > Browsing/Tabbed Browsing
There are 2 "pref pages", check both for options.

F2 -> Tabbed Browsing. Or Right Click on Tabs and then go to Options.

I do not understand what You exactly want to do.
You have to explain or experiment Yourself.

Some things about tabs (I never found or learned myself) from an interesting thread.

E.g. this tab-handling, that they can be dragged around to switch positions, can be double- or middle-clicked to close, and something I just discovered today, quite by accident, drag-n-dropping a tab into the browser window reloads it! That is, the page of the "dragged" tab will open and reload in the current page where it is "dropped".

BTW. Most people here do not speak English - e.g. I speak German.

Hi, mike,

or is this what you're looking for? The K-Meleon equivalent of Firefox' "SplitScreen" is called "juxtaposer".

Cheers

No more own machines, because of addiction.
Don't know when I'll be back to normal ...

Great Mike. No need to excuse for your english, it's perfect except for the speedy typos, and besides this is a pure Danish-Germans thread, LOL! grinning smiley

Once this is set, is there something that needs to be done to make the Preferences load the next time KM loads? Right now, i get things running the way I want, and the next time I start, all is back to default. ?? =Vic

@ herose

Can you check to see if you have write authority to the location where your profile is stored. KM not keeping prefs after restart problem sounds like you might not have write authority.

The current profile folder you find in
Edit > Configuration > Profile Directory
and you must step one or two levels higher, then allow yourself writing into the "Profiles" folder.
Search a bit in the forum for profiles and writing rights, it's full with such stuff :-/
Perhaps you have accidentally chosen the portable version at setup, which stores the profiles inside the programs/K-Meleon folder. That can be reversed if you remove the file "profile.ini" (not profileS.ini!), and restart. Don't forget to close the loader too before restarting. Ah yes, and on some systems there seems to be even a windows restart needed, to get past such security restrictions....

Thx - I'll give it a shot when I get home tonight. I'm NOT running the portable version, and this is the first instance of write issues I've had. Should be interesting. I'll be much happier when all my prefs re-appear. Having my homepage stay will be a big ++.

It does sound like a write issue, and thanks for responding so I didn't keep searching for some quirk within k-meleon. Oh, I did search the forum quite a bit before posting, but searched on Preferences Save and the like smiling smiley

I'll post again if I find anything worth sharing with other KM noobs.

Best regards,

That was the ticket! Thanks all.

I went to Edit/Configuration/Profile Directory
That pulled up Explorer, so I right clicked on the K-Meleon parent folder, then Properties/Security and Edited the permissions for Users, giving Users Full Control.

This is fine for me since I'm the sole user on this computer who would screw something up.

It is niiiice to have my homepage and tabs work the way I want.

Great - finally someone who knows how to give himself folder permissions!! grinning smiley
Man, that's rare, you wouldn't believe how many people never 'master' this, if I look at all the 'bugs' posted in this forums :-/
