Greetings.
I've just started using K-Meleon.
Something that came to my attention immediately is that the
&Add Page
&Edit
&Options
interfere with accessing bookmarks by single keystrokes.
That is I cannot access bookmark(s)/folders beginning with a or e or o ...
hitting a or e or o executes one of the above menu items ...
I wish/hope that K-M will tweak the favorites display to free up the letters a & e & o ...
Thank you.
Regards,
AEN

Just tried it and tested a little... Supposing you can't or don't want to simply use the mouse?
In that case you can alternatively use the cursor keys to select an a-e-o folder, then arrow to the right will open that folder.
Another alternative is to first type e, which opens the editor, and there you can use a-e-o again to jump to folders/bookmarks directly. That's just one single click more...

It seems to me it would be easy for K-M dev to tweak/improve the F&avorites. No other browser has that problem. Opera automatically picks non-conflicting &characters. MFF hard-coded bookmark entries do not have any &characters. K-M could simply remove the & from those hard-coded items or use any number of other solutions ...

The F&avorites is not the only &character problem in K-M.
Preferences main tab has &Close, but some sub-entries also use &c characters. &Close seems to take priority, so doing Alt-C to choose a sub-entry with a &c character will cause Preferences to close ...

You can change the menu definition in \K-Meleon\defaults\settings\menus.cfg file.
At the begin of the file you can find this code:
# ---------- Plugins -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

# ----- Bookmarks

%ifplugin bookmarks
&Bookmarks{
&Add Page=bookmarks(Add)
&Edit...=bookmarks(Edit)
Se&ttings...=bookmarks(Config)
-
bookmarks()
}
%endif

# ----- Favorites

%ifplugin favorites
F&avorites{
&Add Page=favorites(Add)
&Edit...=favorites(Edit)
Se&ttings...=favorites(Config)
-
favorites()
}
%endif

You only have to delete the & in the entry that you like and save the changes in file. Changes take effect when you restart K-Meleon.

"Se&ttings..." is replaced by "&Options..." in the macro \K-Meleon\macros\main.kmm
(in the line 194 on KM 1.6b2).

If you like do advanced changes in menu, you can read this documentation about it:
http://home.arcor.de/cool.mckluus/software/kmeleon/project/reference/cfgfiles/menus.html

For example to do the changes in menu without modify the menu.cfg default file you can do:
Edit -> Configuration -> Menus, and add this code for Bookmarks for example:

!&Bookmarks{
Add Page=bookmarks(Add)|0
Edit...=bookmarks(Edit)|1
Options...=bookmarks(Config)|2
-&Add Page
-&Edit...
-&Options...
}
