Help me with very basics?

I just came back to Kmeleon after an absence. I wanted to put a very easy to use browser on my mom's computer. She's used to IE and Kmeleon always seemed to be friendliest to people switching to a new browser.

With 1.6.0 I cannot seem to find, easily, how to put the HOME, BOOKMARKS, page fwd, page back, icon toolbar back at the top of the page. I think I searched everywhere but don't see any ready options for this.

Also, and this is something I did post sometime back but never got a good response to, how do I enable 1.6.0 to display GMAIL in full?

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.

I downoaded a 1.7 something version, but it does not seem ready for prime time. Is there no way to get 1.6.0 to handle the new GMAIL?

Have you checked if View > Toolbars > Main bar is enabled?

You could try out Fred's latest unofficial version, KM-16-F3625. which seems to handle Gmail, but read this thread first:
