Da wird zwar ein JavaScript Fehler in K-Meleon 1.5.4 Fehlerkonsole angezeigt, er behindert aber nicht die Darstellung der Seite.

Was aber ist, wenn du K-Meleon als Browser-kennung einstellst, schickt dich eine Weiche auf eine Seite, die scheinbar für einen anderen Browser ist.

Abhilfe unter Extras / Browsererkennung

Nimm SeaMonkey oder Firefox.

Oder stell ein: Benutzerdefiniert und z. B. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de-DE; rv: Gecko/20100308 K-Meleon/1.5.4 not Firefox/

Im Übrigen könntest du die Seite mit der letzten Letzte Entwicklerversion auch
ohne den oben erwähnten Fehler haben. Zumindest, wenn du als Browserkennung so etwas einstellst wie: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv: Gecko/20120128 Firefox/3.6.26 GTB7.1

Das wäre K-Meleon 1.6.0 Beta2 (2010-12-12) https://sourceforge.net/projects/kmeleon/files/k-meleon-dev/1.6.0Beta/K-Meleon1.6.0_Beta2_en-US.exe/download besuchen. Nicht in das Verzeichnis c:/Programme/K-Meleon installieren, falls du den mal probieren willst.

Diese Version kann die Profile von 1.5.4 benutzen - ohne sie zu zerstören.

Weitgehend Deutsch kriegst du die meisten Menüs der englischen Version, wenn du ihm von 1.5.4 das /K-Meleon/locales Verzeichnis rüber kopierst und anschließend auf German umstellst.

Hi guenter - I've just figured what youse are talking about--my German is very small and a long time ago!

Anyways, the problem is:
XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: http://www.drivehq.com/
Line Number 547, Column 100:

The segment in question is

And the page header is:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">;
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">;

Most--I won't say "good"--XML parsers treat this type of error as fatal, and simply stop with the error message. IMHO, they should continue and list all errors.

I've noticed similar XML parsing errors in 1.6.0b2, and I'm using 1.6.0b2.5 now.

If you change to FF user agent, the error disappears--but (like IE) FF was never fussy about silly coding errors.

Default and SeaMonkey produce the error.

As for why changing the user agent "fixes" the problem, only Mozilla knows. I cannot see any way the user agent can affect how the client-side parser works. Unless Gecko looks at the user agent and changes its error-tolerance? But that's dumb!

Hi Gordon, basically I told him that he must fake another browser ID, else they send him to a page that is for another browser ( I assume IE ) and is ill formed XML like You said.

That error ceases to be a show stopper when You fake Firefox and is not even present with GRE of 1.6+ plus fake UserAgentString.

Then I told him to perhaps update to 1.6beta and how to get mostly German menues.

Greetings to Australia and sorry that I did not see any reason to write English for a guy that has a German IP. German is so much easier for me.
