hostperm.1 limitations in K-Meleon

I recently came to know that the hostperm.1 file in the profile directory is useless in blocking scripts, stylesheets,..etc. except cookies, popups and images.
According to mozilla documents, the hostperm.1 is used to block or allow the following types of selectors:
cookie
document
image
object
popup
script
stylesheet
subdocument
cookie
In my time consuming test, I have found that K-Meleon DOES NOT block many selectors like (document, image, object, script, subdocument and stylesheet).
Although I have a large sized file hostperm.1, it is useless.
Can anyone tell me whether I am wrong? I am using KM with ABP and Policy manager, and tested these things with or without them (disabled or uninstalled).
I think that there might be some way to re-enable the hostperm.1 power?
Please reply

What version?

I had bad experiences in the past too, but I can guarantee you that image and script works perfectly because I used a couple of times before switching from 1.1.x to 1.6.x.

Of course, I'm talking about 1.1.x. If it was broken in 1.5.x, I have no idea as I never used that intermediate version. But should work as well.

I don't think hostperm file is used anymore, these things are stored in an SQL database filenow, I think it changed around version 1.5 or so...

That's it.

@JohnHell
1.54, I did not take any tests on 1.6 b2 because this version is unstable on my machine, it sometimes just automagically dissappears e closes itself.

@snuz2
bad news
