updated variation: K-Meleon18117forCD-kiosk

I have uploaded to Rapidshare a variation K-Meleon18117forCD-kiosk.
- This is a modified 1.x version, based on Mozilla 1.8.1.17 ,
Gecko date 20080829, that can be burned to CD,
to be used from a CD drive, or from any other drive.
- Nothing will be written on a computer, that you use,
where you have no writing rights, and only reading access is allowed.
- The kiosk version has Fullscreen only, with no toolbars .
Menus only in the right click menu.
Saving and opening of files can be restricted in menus.cfg and accel.cfg.
- Unzip the file and burn it on a CD.
- Note that the files msvcp71.dll and msvcr71.dll must be in the windows system
or else in your K-Meleon main folder. If you need them, look for them in the internet.
- No history view and no bookmarks saving possible, because of
read only functions.
- Javascript button for blocking and allowing javascript.
Reload the page after changing.
- The menu is in the button Preferences (right click), or in the
shortcut Alt + X.
- To reach an existing bookmarks file on a floppy
or elsewhere, or a start page somewhere on the computer
or the web, enter the path to them in Tools/Hotkeys,
to reach them as a web file using a shortcut
Ctrl + number 1 to 0.
- For easy keyboard navigation, use :
Ctrl(right)+arrow left for going back one page.
Ctrl(right)+arrow right for going forward one page.
Ctrl(right)+arrow down for closing a window.
- Background and font have been set to navy/white for all pages by default.
If you want the original page colors, set the pref
user_pref("browser.display.use_document_colors", false);
in both files named prefs.js in the main folder as well as in in the defaults folder to
user_pref("browser.display.use_document_colors", true);
before you burn the cd.
To have flash available, you can put the flash plugin NPSWF32.dll into the
folder plugins before you burn the cd.
- This version uses a no-xul chrome, which makes it fast, but does not allow xul-based extensions.
Download as a zip file, here:

or as a tarball for Linux with wine , here :

Regards to all

To disable right click for everything is not useful.

You will always need a URL bar to enter addresses,
and other necessary functions as going back or
forward etc.

To disable certain functions you should edit the file
menu.cfg in the K-Meleon main folder, disabling
unwanted lines by writing the sign # at the beginning
of these lines.
This is mainly in the sections
DocumentPopup , FrameDocumentPopup, ImagePopup
LinkPopup and similar.
Lines beginning with a ! or : are references to
other parts defined higher in the page, and must be
disabled there.
Menu entries can also be disabled in menu.cfg,
and the status bar too.
To disable unwanted keyboard shortcuts, edit the
file accel.cfg, in the same way.

In Windows, there is the problem with the Windows
default keyboard shortcuts.
Read my post about that here:

You can go to /defaults/pref/kmeleon.js and
set the line

pref("kmeleon.plugins.fullscreen.hide_statusbar", false);
to
pref("kmeleon.plugins.fullscreen.hide_statusbar", true);

to hide the status bar in fullscreen mode, and do the
same thing in /defaults/pref.js and prefs.js in the
K-Meleon main folder.

the prefs changes can be done at a single attmept via user.js in used profile.

AFAIK that overrides all (both) other locations.
