Skaarj,

I'm assuming you want to turn off all underlining in web pages you visit. The following explains how to do that:

1. Open up your favorite text editor. Notepad will do.

2. Copy the following line into a new file:

user_pref("browser.underline_anchors", false);

3. Save the file as:

user.js

to your *.slt directory located here:

Profiles\default\*.slt

This link will tell you where that directory is located for your OS:

http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/docs/faq.php#favorites1

Now, the next time that K-Meleon starts, this preference is copied over into your prefs.js file, which is located in the same directory. Technically, you could add that line to prefs.js but by locating it in user.js, you don't have to worry about it getting hosed if the prefs.js file is overwritten. If you have done this properly, links should not appear by default [CSS might override that in some cases - not sure].

Hope that helps!

Andrew

i could be mistaken, but as near as i can tell, CSS overides damn near anything... :-)

Po,

Yeah, that might be true. I think there might be a way to disable CSS but that could have some harsh effects on some pages.

it's not a feature i ever took advantage of, but i seem to recall that IE (?... some browser) could be configured to always conform to a user-defined style sheet... this seems like a really good accessibility feature; it would take care of font color/size/style and a few other things, too... but it would definitely mess with some (particularly, poorly designed) pages. if it means the difference between being able to read them or not, though, one might be inclined not to care...

To the original question, if others are interested in changing this and other settings, see these Docs:
