new tab

great job! i was looking for a browser like this

though opening a new tab with a mouse middle button is quite unusual. it focuses on a NEW tab, so i have to browse it back. it should keep the focus on the source tab. or it should be changeable in preferences (radio button: smth like "new tabs behaviour")

Look under:

1.) Tools -> Mouse Accelerators - If You want them like another browser.

2.) F2 -> Mouse Accelerators - if You want to fine tune.

3.) F2 -> Tabbed Browsing - if You want to change tab behavior.

oops: 2.) Mouse Accelerators must be Mouse Gestures

Thanks Günter.
I got the same "problem".
I like to open several background tabs when browsing different sites, eg. news sites or forums.
I tried your recommendations, only one of them worked, and I have some comments:

1.) Tools -> Mouse Accelerators - If You want them like another browser.
By chosing firefox 2.0, the tabs opened in the background, so that advice worked.

2.) F2 -> Mouse Accelerators - if You want to fine tune.
There's not such thing, or I couldn't find it, in K-Meleon 1.5.4.

3.) F2 -> Tabbed Browsing - if You want to change tab behavior.
Missing the option "when middle click - open tab in background".

1.) Good. smiling smiley

2.) Sorry that is my fault! Must be: Mouse Gestures.
At the bottom of my screenshot. That fine tunes the mouse behavior.

Reason for my fault: I use normally German menus not English ones.
It is faster to translate then to switch. But sometimes I translate a little wrong. sad smiley

Usually You find the items that You need there.

If You cannot find an action anywhere?

Generally: Go. Mouse Gestures -> Manage Actions. You can add new commands.

Documentaion of Accelerator keys.

You probably could for Your question 3.)

3.) See what is activated in screenshot.

Tabbed Browsing -> Tab Bar -> Middle Click ->...

If You do not find Your action there You can custom tailor actions via Manage Actions.

For "when middle ...". Specifically.

I'd look for info in ./defaults/settings/accel.cfg as docu. smiling smiley

accels.cfg
# ----- Link Handling

# Middle-click links to new windows/tabs:
%ifplugin tabs
MButton = ID_OPEN_LINK_IN_NEW_TAB
%else
MButton = ID_OPEN_LINK_IN_NEW_WINDOW
%endif

# Middle-click links to the background (instead of the above):
#%ifplugin tabs
#MButton = ID_OPEN_LINK_IN_BACKGROUNDTAB
#%else
#MButton = ID_OPEN_LINK_IN_BACKGROUND
#%endif

Do not change this file! The real changes are done via:

Edit -> Configuration -> Accelerators which writes into the user defined accel.cfg file in Profiles.


Greetings to DK from Hannover, Have a nice WeekEnd.
