You can update K-meleon 1.7 to the latest FF 3.6.19

To update K-meleon 1.7 to the latest FF 3.6.19, you will
need to download the FireFox at:

http://ftp-test.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/3.6.19-candidates/build1/win32/en-US

Then when downloaded "open inside" the file with 7.zip or
any zipping file. Drag out the file "nonlocalized" & open it.
That holds the files you need.

In K-meleon 1.7 you just want to relpace the files that are in K-meleon with the same named files that are in the FireFox files.

The same named files you need to replace is:
"components" & "greprefs" & "modules"
In "defaults" look for the file "autoconfig" & replace the files there.

Delete the "res" file in K-meleon & replace with FireFox "res" file.

Then in the main, K-meleon file relpace the files in K-meleon
with the same named FireFox files & delete the "platform" file
in K-meleon. That is it!

All seems to work good on my system.

I tested it at these sites & this is what I got...

K-Meleon with GRE 1.9.2.14pre---( A ) Old
K-Meleon with GRE 1.9.2.19---( B ) New
FireFox with GRE 1.9.2.19---( C ) New Firefox

( C ) == 13.6 sec.

( B ) == 94/100

I have worked at updating the K-meleon 1.6, but
it loaded up faster, but all the test I did it was a
slow down. The http://html5test.com test was 119
It works but not to good.

I have also looked at FireFox http://ftp-test.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/firefox-8.0a1.en-US.win32.installer.exe

But I had no luck! It's too far out there For KM!

The history glitch is from FireFox part. It's that new way FireFox is using history for history & cookies. It's not K-meleon! That is why I can not update the FF6+ engine to K-meleon. The problem is in the Profile.

Fixing this is over my head on that part. Being me I would copy the about:config in
K-meleon to be just like FireFox line form line. To see if that works.
Add what you need to the K-meleon lines, to see if it works.

I run on a old system, so things are different for me on programing.
I don't run like WIN XP.

I will look at it.
Have my K-meleon site.
