Means that You have setup K-Meleon so that it does not have writing privileges in Your Profiles folder. That is the case after You have un-slected multi-user profiles during install. That choice is for portable K-Meleon or for Win9x, mainly.


Either: Delete ./program files/K-Meleon/profile.ini (that file makes that the Profiles is written into install directory - e.g. for a portable K-Meleon). After that file is deleted K-Meleon will create a new Profile in Your system's user data directory.


Else: Grant writing privileges to the K-Meleon user in

./program files/K-Meleon/profiles/"Name of the profile"

BTW. In rare cases the laking privileges are a windows fault.
If that is the case always do "Else".
Just in case You have had customized Your K-Meleon already You'd also do "Else".


p. s. This is no K-Meleon bug. Default settings should be used unless You want to create a portable setup; created new, independent profiles for testing, use a single user on a win 98x machine or know exactly what You are doing.

So this thread will be eventually relocated to General Forum.
