I'm using Foxit on windows 7 without any problems.

Maybe you are using 64bit Windows?

Want an alternative?
You could choose it HERE

I find Foxit Reader the best option but if you've got troubles there...

I suppose Sumatra to be the lightest alternative. But all have their own limitations. Choose one or investigate your system in deep to make Foxit work.

HiRodo,I have uninstalled Foxitreader and installed sumatra Pdf,it is working excellently and browser has never crashed or freezed.It is also very fast compared to Foxitreader.Thank you for your kind help.Can you clarify me why certain websites'icons are not stored in the bookmarks list as well as not visible in addressbar.For ex www,softoogle.com the icon is stored and visible in the addressbar where as www.softpedia.com icon is not stored and visible in the addressbar like that many instances.If icon is displayed in the address bar,it looks attractive.

Hi, Kandra!
1) Icon handling in KM is really buggy. No chance to really change this. Well, I don't know how to do it.

2) You system is a real storehouse of strange bugs. What is your exact config? I haven't met likes.
What are your connection specs?

Try to install Fasterfox extension and test different networg config presets from there.

Else I don't know what to advise.

It's up to you. Preinstalled extensions were selected by dugbug and me to improve browsing experience.

Anyway, most of extensions (that are just macros) aren't heavy and cannot really decrease KM performance on such a modern PC.

Hi Rodo, By enabling adblock the pages load faster or slower ,kindly let me know.

Hi, Kandra!

1) maybe you mean notification about 'Unresponsive script'? This happens on some js-rich pages as the engine of KM is outdated and is heavily loaded by script.
If such a behavior is usual for one of you favorite pages then I recommend open it in ChromeTab and add that link to Bookmarks (press Ctrl+D while in Chrometab).
Now opening this page from Bookmarks will force to load it by Chrome engine.

2) AdBlock definitely fastens page load as it filters out much of web-garbage. And it doesn't slow down KM by itself.
