Yes, but I'm afraid that doesn't always work on all machines anymore...
Not sure why and when. At any rate the only way that helped myself and someone else recently, was to add new entries directly in about:config
So I'd suggest to try the normal way first, and if no luck, just use that universal way to add prefs ;)
Yet another alternative:
Another possibility is to create an own file with the desired prefs and put it into the default prefs folder, from where they get read at each browser start.
At first this is a bit more complicated, but if one often creates new profiles (like me), or tries new browser versions with 'mostly' default settings, then I find it easier to just copy over one file than a bunch of single prefs.
Example: Copy the blue text below into e.g. Notepad and save it as e.g. "my_searchengines.js", but make sure it has no ".txt" extension:
/******** Must be in program folder ....k-meleon/defaults/pref ********/
// Changes take effect after a restart
// Or add or change entries immediately in 'about:config' page (=stored in prefs.js in profile)
// ! There must be no 'holes' in numbering (check about:config first, replace 91,92,etc)
// Tip: Put a backup-copy into your profile folder
// If containing special characters, this file should be in UTF-8 encoding
pref("kmeleon.plugins.macros.search.engine91.name", "ebay.it - classico");
pref("kmeleon.plugins.macros.search.engine93.name", "LEO EN - DE Woerterbuch");
Just a few example entries. Should work after a browser restart, and you can still call about:config and change those entries there too.
IMPORTANT: Change 91, 92, 93 etc. to your own numbers!
Same prob here as with User Agents, the menu stops building if a 'hole' between number is found. If you skip a number (like 1,2,7,8,...) KM thinks this were the end of your list. So open 'about:config' first and look which number was your last one, then start counting from there.
PS: I especially like to also have a separate file for useragents, it's just handier and easier to find. Suggestion to make this default ;-)
