Sorry if this has been covered here. I did a search but didn't see it.
Google gmail now opens in k-meleon with the following error message

Quote
Some important features may not work in this version of your browser, so you have been redirected to the Basic HTML version. Upgrade to a modern browser, such as Google Chrome. Try standard version anyway.

...and, naturally, there are no functions, such as spell check, available in this mode. Yet clicking on "try standard version anyway" opens a mostly functional "standard version" which I'm pretty happy using. So how can I keep gmail from automatically redirecting me to the html version? Can I change settings in kmeleon or in gmail that will induce it to just open the standard version?

The same question every time :-)

What is your KM version? If using 1.5.x then best you can do is to upgrade to new 1.6 or 1.7.
You can try portable builds from my signature or search this forum for more links.

In my 1.7 build I have no problems with Gmail.

frascati,

If you are using K-Meleon 1.6beta2, you can change the user agent string to use most, but not all of Google's offerings, including the standard Gmail instead of the older, basic html version.

There are many spoof user agent strings available for K-Meleon 1.6.xxx. this is one that I use successfully at Gmail.... Google Docs is another issue. It works somewhat, but no drag and drop from Windows Explorer for file transfer.

Gmail doesn't work in K-meleon if you enable CSS Ad-blocking, some messages will be hidden. (you can add gmail to whitelist though).

I'm not sure what the three posters previous to mine wanted to accomplish but they did not mention what version of K-meleon they are using.

Try using either KM 75.1 or 76 beta for GMail.

You have been redirected to the basic HTML version because this browser is not supported. To use standard view please upgrade to a supported browser.

K-Meleon version?




roytam1's test version http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/read.php?19,143253 - is my current fad.

What I hate about Gmail is that in standard version you don't necessarily see all the messages like in html version. I figured that out because I could sign out only in html version - and there it was; in all white because it was not opened.

KmG version works fine in Gmail, but I still check html version just in case...

I prefer the HTML interface as it just looks a lot cleaner and doesn't have any of the bloat tongue sticking out smiley
