yep.. you're right.
i didn't get the unresponsive script alert but i got that right away:
the reason why it started a week or so ago (even i browse ebay occassionally and never got that before) is due to ebay changed a bit their layout and function calling scripts.
ebay is trying to open a frame with login terminal(if you're not logged) or frame with your account data(if you're already logged) using this js command:
var frameSrc = " ]http://promo.ebay.com.au /ws/eBayISAPI.dll?GetCrossPromos&strsellerid=
if you strip out the url directly:
and click on it, you will get the download prompt.. this happens because unlike other browsers, k-meleon can't read the full url address and stops at the question mark"?".. triggering a file download for the ebayISAPI.dll.. this is very strange from k-meleon because it see the url normally on other internal ebay links having the ebayISAPI.dll
the link above should give a page not found or a blank page..and when tested with other gecko browser, webkit and ie..this is exactly what happens without any download prompt.
the problem is, is i can't confirm it as a bug because i can't know for certain it there's a problem with how kmeleon is interperting the code(i don't see anything substantial in the error console) or if there is something weird ging on at ebay...
i can't generate the download prompt everytime and for the last 10 minutes it seems to have gone?! is it still doing the same thing with you?
maybe we should wait for feedback from other users, especially the guru ones and then i think it will be valid to be a bug.
for now, first you can use your old profile.. there's nothing wrong with your settings.. i apologise for that inconvenience.
maybe try using another browser for ebays.. i recommend using http://www.lauge.de/en/
it's a very nice ebay browser. if you really need to use k-meleon for ebay..then you can try the ietab extension and then you can right click on ebay links inside k-meleon and select open in ietab-this opens the page in internet explorer rendering engine which will load the page without problems.
you can download ietab from this link:
extract the 7z package in k-meleon's install folder..restart kmeleon and right click on ebay links>select open in ietab.
p.s. keep testing every now and then and see if it's gone cause i can't bring it up anymore (maybe ebay fixed it as we type )
