I have been noticing a bug that's been occurring for a while which I have forgot to mention earlier. Its that every so often, the text in the Search Bar (which is a K-Meleon plugin) and the URL drop down box gets enlarged/bolded. Here's a link to a screenshot that shows the issue:

That's not a problem of K-meleon 74, but K-meleon itself since 1.1.x versions.

I never reported it for a simple reason, because before it happens, I've done some kind of windows GUI change, video watch, media editing, etc. I'm not saying it is the cause, but usually it is related to that kind of tasks.

And it is quite random. Sometimes happens, sometimes doesn't... It's not very common.

(This reply is without testing RC installer yet (I'll do later today) but the behavior wasn't KM74 specific and wanted to point it out, but if it could get fixed wouldn't say no ;))

Dorian, thanks for including the history changes, but you left as a comment the following code in history.xul and the background window menu entry wasn't available ;)

	 <!--     <menuitem id="historyContext_opennewbackwindow"
              command="historyCmd_openbackwindow"
              label="&cmd.opennewbackwindow.label;"
              accesskey="&cmd.opennewbackwindow.accesskey;"
              selectiontype="single"
              selection="link"/>-->

The new history.xul ;) :
history.xul

One thing I found to warn for those using custom skins (as skin.js isn't read now) is that the toolbars get reset in their positioning. Probably because of the fixed issue with skin.js. I don't know.

A note about installations of K-meleon 74 (all versions), I know it implies more RAM usage (in my system just 4MB more) but, what about compress omni.ja (decompress and recompress) and xul.dll (this with upx)? We save in the installation directory over 20MB. I know even Firefox doens't do this, but for low specs machines (hard disk drives) could be a breath for space.

You did great work with Bookmark Editor adding new metods to open links for bookmstks.

However, "Open in a New Window" is missing as an option even its one of methods to oprn links in -Meleon 74.0RC's main.kmm macro file.

Can you explain this in more detail? Am I wrong to assume this is back to the way it used to be?

Could be.

The thing is that K-meleon 74 now doesn't ship a skin.js in "\browser\defaults\preferences" so now there aren't default settings for a skin.

When K-meleon 74 RCi loaded for the first time, the skin loaded from my profile settings, that hasn't a skin.js file, looked as being reset, this is with the toolbars mixed and with changed positions and not as they were with K-meleon 74 RC (the update to b4u4 from the other thread) and previous versions.

What I meant by the warn is that, maybe for custom skins like mine, that hasn't a skin.js file (is it being used in the skin folder now or not? what issue was really fixed regarding skin.js?) the skin defaults to some mixed order in the toolbars.

Before the fix, skins.js wasn't read at all. Now it looks for it in the skin folder.

The option to "Open in background Windows:" is missing the history list eventhough

case "historyCmd_openbackwindow" is in controller.js located in the folder

browser\omni.ja\omni\chrome\kmeleon\content\history

in which the option to "Open in background Windows" defined as one of the methods to open links in the history list.

I would add en-US readme.html file to omni.ja resource:///readme.html does not work unless readme.html is added to the omni.ja file.

And with it added to omni.ja when click default with "Load home page" it will load readme.html as the Home Page.

To "Welcome to K-Meleon" with resource:///readme.html will not work with en-US without at readme.html in omni.ja.

Also you have to switch to a different langauge and switch back to en-US for "Welcome to K-Meleon" for en-US.

Then you have to click defualt for "load local homepage" because resource:///readme.html loads the readme.html for anoter langaue unless you click default on "load home page".

1. Is there any way I can help you be able to fix it?
2. Its as I stated. Basically, the icons in the folder pane of the Open and Save As Dialog Boxes become "unregistered filetype" icons every now and then. I think that a GDI leak is occurring which is resulting in that happening.

Btw, the latest version that is being linked to on its project page is the old one. Please fix it so it links to the RC of K-Meleon 74.

When I use a proxy tool connect to the internet,to do the same thing,it didn't crash! I'm confused.

Very happy there is finally a new "official" version on the homepage, thank you! After all those years, and everyone had long since lost hope... smiling smiley smiling smiley smiling smiley

Looking at it, there are now only versions KM74 and KM1.5.4 left on the main page. That got me thinking: Considering KM's reputation, there should be a hint about min. system requirements. It's now starting with XP-SP3 if I read the forum right?

That also means, people with older systems are led to think the extremely outdated 1.5.4 were the last possible version for their system, if they are passing by in a hurry (and who is not these days). Perhaps the 1.6-beta2 could still be kept on the entry page, between 74 and 1.5.4? Could be entitled "last official development version for older systems" or whatever?
And frankly, knowing that 1.6beta still had heavy bugs, I'd even love to have some hint that further improved beta versions can be found in the forum, though not official ones...

I run it in XP with SP2. SP3 is not mandatory, or I didn't have the need of SP3... at least in my machines, physical and virtual.

From the crash dump, it seems the cause of the crash is something you did before
If you could make a crash report when it crash with left click too, I may be able to find something.

In kmprefs font settings, you must select chinese first (default is western)

If there is a guide for km 1.6, we could link to it.

Don't know about a guide page, but doubt if it's necessary. My impression was always that 1.6/1.7 run nicely out-of-the-box on win2000+earlier XP systems? Then reading the forum after the first 74-betas it sounded like there had been a severe jump in sys requirements between 1.6 and 74? But no idea, perhaps that was only in the first 74 versions?

Dorian,
thank you for your job!

Here was a stupid question but I solved the 'puzzle'.

So just add to the first update (and for new releases) correct chrome.manifest from rootfolder. It must contain 2 lines not only first one:
binary-component k-meleon.exe
manifest extensions/extensions.manifest


Try K-Meleon-1.6db+NS by dugbug // KM-16-S2014 by Fred // 1.6beta2.6 by JamesD

K-Meleon Twin+ Download for modern browsers =//= Download for old ones =//= Discuss it!!!

New KM74 for test and feedback! Get it there!
