K-Meleon UNOFFICIAL update to Gecko 1.8.1.19.
Posted by: desga2
Date: December 21, 2008 03:53AM

K-Meleon UNOFFICIAL update to Gecko 1.8.1.19. (From Seamonkey 1.1.14)
Tested in K-Meleon 1.5.x but I think this patch work in all K-Meleon versions 1.1.x, and possibly 1.x, Gecko is Gecko, yes it's?

IMPORTANT NOTE: Make a K-Meleon folder backup before to test this update.
This patch had some problems to download files (K-Meleon crash).
I fixed the problem now patch work fine.

How to fix this problem in futures updates?

File source of the problem is Seamonkey's xpcom_core.dll.
This file isn't longer compatible with K-Meleon.

I replaced xpcom*.dll files (xpcom_core.dll, xpcom_compat.dll, xpcom.dll) in main K-Meleon folder for same files from Dorian's build 1.5.2RC2 (Gecko 1.8.1.18)

I replaced all xpcom*.dll files because this will prevent future problems by incompatible versions between xpcom files. (In my tests worked only replaced xpcom_core.dll by Dorian's last version build file)

(I think this problem is caused by different VC++ versions used for build, Seamonkey used VC++ 6, but Dorian used VC++ 7.1)

AFAIK Yes: 1.x, 1.1.X and 1.5.x use the same engine type = 1.8.x.
1.x used other chrome.dll & xpt - that is the main difference when updating GREs.

p.s. I used Fred's files to update versions ranging from 1.x - 1.5.x.
Fred also has GRE fom Mozilla.org which is compiled with VC 6..

I find Dorian's (compiled with Visual C 7.1) GRE more stable.

Desga2, thanks a lot. Used 7zip to decompress the .exe and copied the files by hand)
Works like a charm. No bugs so far. Thank you!

Perhaps I spoke too soon. Downloads seem to hang. Browser has to be restarted.

What K-Meleon version updated with my patch?

I tried to download some files with K-Meleon 1.5.2RC updated with my patch and download fine (files downloaded OK).

Can post you some download links you have problems?

Thanks for testing my update patch.

It is not specific to Your patch - I used Fred's update files.
I do not think it is needed that I check with Your files.
The K-Meleons I have updated are mainly for banking.

Sorry I did not bookmarks any URLs - just started another k-m.
Several other versions are installed and in their original condition.

It can be a setting causes it if it is combined with SeaMonkey files.
It is possibly depending on the values in mimeTypes.rdf.

I updated a 1.1.4 with newest GRE and a 1.5.1 -> 1.5.2 -> then newest GRE

Yes, it's possible that the problem is mimeTypes definition.
I tested in default config (without any old mimeTypes "Edit -> MIME Types" defined) but with plugins files mimeTypes in Preferences (F2) -> Browsing -> File Handling (new mimeTypes).
Files i tested to download were .exe files.

What file type have problems for download to you?

exe & pdf for me. But not always. So I fear I can not show a way to reproduce.
My link to reproduce: mad smiley I could not download a replacement if I had had only this K-Meleon.

Another case that seems possibly related - but is not identical.

"ancientuser" has had reproducable errors with K-Meleon 1.5.1 and pdf.
But on an Estionian banking page. So I do not see a way to reproduce the problem.sad smiley

I tried again with your test link and download work fine. (It takes a little time to start, usual in SourceForge downloads, this depends of download mirror server)

Only I noted that the first time that I downloaded this file download dialog was usual (with progress bar and download speed and size values), but seconds downloads download dialog is showed as this image:



I guess this is for file are in cache and really isn't downloaded from website because no time to download, this is an instantly.

@ kko: Do you remmember that I noted this K-Meleon icon was over "Downloading..." title text in download dialog and I added some spaces in front of title text string in spanish (es-ES) K-Meleon version?
This also happend in en-US version, in all 1.5.x versions in all languages I think.

I think we are wasting time.
I will next install a new 1.5.1de-DE for normal use and keep this for banking only.

A stopping download - it will stop all browser windows & it will crash when I close it.


p.s. A totally ruined K-Meleon install or OS.sad smiley

Ok, thanks guenter, but I only need the part of text showed in dialog, not all text. The dll is indicated at begining of the text.

visual c 6 debugger points at: 7C92B1FA inc dword ptr [eax+10h]

screenshot says: K-Meleon hidden window:K-Meleon.exe fault in program

the coomand in 0x7C92B1FA points to 0x00000010

... written could no be done.


This has nothing to do with K-Meleon. I checked with 3 PC,
2xXP, 1xWin2000. I used used 1.1.4, 1.5.0, 1.5.1, 1.5.2.

It is my systems or the GRE.

For all the last tests I used desgas2 fine exe, it is so elegant to use thanx!
Before, I also tested with Fred's files.

I used desga's unofficial package and had the same problem. After about 10 sec. the download starts but mostly K-Meleon crashes.
So I copied the needed files from 1.5.2 RC2 and everything works fine. Than I updated my K-Meleon once again with desga's exe and now the download problem doesn't happen. I tried many times - every download succeeds. Weird surprised smiley.

I'm doing a lot of test of my patch with different K-Meleon version and languages.
I can reproduce this problem with next steps:
1) Install my patch update.
2) Open K-Meleon and download guenter's before links to test downloads.
3) All downloads tried ended fine.
4) Close K-Meleon. (K-Meleon closed is right)
5) Open K-Meleon and download files again.
6) K-Meleon crash or not download in a lot of time or show same guenter's download dialog but download not progress. Some times I can cancel download in download dialog but any url is loaded after it (showed blanks pages and loading throbber).
In this last case K-Meleon crash when is closed.

I think that something is changed in K-Meleon prefs when first K-Meleon closed and this produces the error.

I'll continued test to detect the wrong file in this update.

Thanks Desga2!

In the about K-Meleon keeps saying it's:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; es-ES; rv:1.8.1.16)

I suposse this is nothing to worry about, isn't it?

Are you sure?
Can you paste all about user agent string line?
I think you are using Firefox 2.0.x or Seamonkey 1.1.x override instead default K-Meleon user agent string. Tools -> User Agent -> Default.

Yes you are right, I was using FF2 user agent, if I set it on default it shows the GRE version properly.

Thx.

It would be a waste of Your time to update xpcom*.dll.
The file is identical for long periods.
