I should clarify. I thought at one time that my Bookmarks and Hotlist were
working. However, I am having the same problems Flekto describes.

But the weird thing is Favorites menu does not show up. Still weirder is the Favorites toolbar does appear. But it does not function correctly. On the far left where it has the button to open the Favorites menu it does not work correctly. Opening it just brings open a very thin line. But if you move the mouse pointer along it the various folders will open. This is truly bizarre so I am open to trying anything.

Try this:
1) Open Edit > Configuration > Profile Directory.
2) Close km completely.
3) Open prefs.js with a text editor (e.g. Notepad).
4) If you find a line like this:

user_pref("kmeleon.plugins.favorites.directory", <...>);

Delete this line, save your changes and close the file.
5) Repeat steps 3) and 4) with user.js.
6) Restart km.

Thanks KKO. There is just one problem I am having. I assume it to be a simple one
for the experienced which I often am not. When I try to open prefs.js or user.js
I have something pop up which says Windows Script Host access is disabled on this
machine. Apparently I have disabled it. I just do not know how to enable it.

We should try to isolate the problem. First do a search on "wscript.exe" It should be located in your WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 folder. Next open notepad and copy the following code into it. Save the file as wshtest.vbs in your My Documents folder. You will have to click on all files in the save panel to it won't save as txt. Run the vbscript file you have just saved. It should tell you the version of jscript and windows scripting host that you have on your computer. If this runs OK then Windows Scripting host is working.

'Script to display WSH, VBScript, WMI, and ADSI versions
'Script created by Guy Thomas

On Error Resume Next

WScript.Echo "WSH Version: " & WScript.Version

Wscript.Echo "JScript Version: " & ScriptEngineMajorVersion _
& "." & ScriptEngineMinorVersion

'strComputer = "."
'Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
'& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer _
'& "\root\cimv2")
'Set colWMISettings = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
'("Select * from Win32_WMISetting")
'For Each objWMISetting in colWMISettings
'Wscript.Echo "WMI Version: " & objWMISetting.BuildVersion
'Next

'Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
'strAdsiVersion = _
'objShell.RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed 'Components\{E92B03AB-B707-11d2-9CBD-0000F87A369E}\Version")
'If strAdsiVersion = vbEmpty Then
'strAdsiVersion = objShell.RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ADs\Providers\LDAP\")
'If strAdsiVersion = vbEmpty Then
'strAdsiVersion = "ADSI is not installed."
'Else
'strAdsiVersion = "2.0"
'End If
'End If
'WScript.Echo "ADSI Version: " & strAdsiVersion

Thanks for the help JamesD. I tried all the above. When I run the vbscript file it
gives that same message. It says Windows Script Host access is disabled on this
machine. I know I did it correctly as it does work on another computer. Anything
else I can try.

3) Open prefs.js with a text editor (e.g. Notepad).

I have not told you to run the file. The *.js files I'm talking about are no valid script files. You cannot run them with Windows Script Host - whether it's enabled or not.

I suggest to simply right-click the file and choose Edit.

Thanks KKO. The problem is it gives the same error message if I run it by double
clicking or if I right click and use open. Also same problem if I open Notepad
first and instruct it to open the file. What can I do?

@ Nith

We do not want you to run the file. You need to edit the file. If you right click on the perfs.js the second item in the menu should be "edit". Clicking on that should start notepad to edit the perfs.js file. Look for a line that looks like this

user_pref("kmeleon.plugins.favorites.directory", <...>);

If there is a line like that then delete that line and save the file. You should repeat the same process on the file user.js.

Sorry about my post on the 27th. I was addressing the wrong problem. I cannot understand why your Windows Scripting Host is disabled. We should address that problem later. For now just look for and delete the user_perf kko indicated.

I deleted this one user_pref("kmeleon.plugins.favorites.load", true)

@ Nith

The user_pref("kmeleon.plugins.favorites.load", true); is needed so that K-Meleon calls the favorites.dll at startup. That one needs to remain in the file. We were looking to see if there was a user-perf that directed the favorites locations to some folder other than the default. I do not see any such user-perf in your file.

Look in the kplugins folder under K-Meleon and make sure the favorites.dll file is there.

Yes, thanks again JamesD. The favorites.dll file is there. Seems like I have some
really weird computers here. Let me know if some more potential solutions come up.

With regard to the problem of Windows Scripting Host being disabled on you machine, I found this info http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/guide/sas_sbp_lhak.mspx?mfr=true

I do not think this is answer to your favorites problem but I wonder if any other "adjustments" have been made to your machine that might change how K-Meleon works.

I have a similar problem nith. I have been trying to understand jamesd's directions but I too am not real savy with this stuff. I have recently deleted firefox because it ran way to slow. I did not even think to export my files back to internet explorer. The favorites icon shows up, but i can not access any of them. It says shortcut not valid. When i try to add one the error message says cannot access file because it is being used by another process. I have done everything I can think of to make sure that ie is my default browser, but nothing has worked. I think I have put about 20 hours into this. I still think somewhere that mozilla has them. I don't even know how I will get back if anyone responds because I can't even add this to my favorites. I hope someone can help. thanks

@ linda lou

When you click on the Windows Start button, does an item labeled "Favorites" show up on the screen? If it does, and you click on that item do you see the favorites that you expect to be there?

Also just for information what operating system are you using and what version of K-Meleon are you using?

And just so I don't misunderstand, we are discussing favorites not bookmarks?

BTW. We are at version 1.1.2 - So it is maybe time to update?

Went to run and entered favorites and there they were. Go to 'folders' on the favorite site and your desktop list will come up. Your computer name will show you have your favorites there.

Also see the following post at the same thread
Does seem as if the Windows XP Favorites problem for most users is in the number
of Favorites. This also seems to vary from one computer to the next. My computer
has literally thousands of Favorites in one profile. Here is how I solved my
problem. I simply installed Windows XP Service Pack 3. It is a beta version
but is totally stable. It can be downloaded from many sources including this
