The computer should obey the stop order better

Several times, when I want to see a site, and notice that it will take to much time, I order for the computer to stop. I click on the X with the mouse and I press Esc in the keyboard, but generally the computer don't obey, or it take very much time until the computer stop. Is it so difficult to create a navigator that obeys more to the order that come form the keyboard (the orders of the owner) than to orders of externals sources? Is it so difficult? I think that is a bias form the guys that create the navigators. When I cut the electricity, the computer ever knows how to stop.

Your problem doesn't seem to be one native to K-Meleon, but rather to computer maintenance and RAM. Here are a few links:

Sometimes, especially with KM 1.6 beta, I have that prob too, the whole browser window seems like frozen for a long while. But have lately noticed that it helps to keep a second browser window open (can stay empty), and if one window 'freezes', I click the other one in the taskbar, that seems to break up the queue: immediately the first window is reacting again to the mouse and keyboard cool smiley

In fact, you can click any type of other window and back to KM to wake it up. I am fairly certain this is a KernelX problem, maybe related to using KernelX for some programs but not all of them, creating multiple queues for moouse and keyboard events. I will try to research it a little more this week.

Any XP users experiencing these lockups? Sometimes they never time out.

Also, it looks like Flash running can prevent clicks from getting through to the browser.
