How to install extensions

I've searched this whole forum for "insall extensions" (no results) and "KEM" (1 useless result). There seem to be no instructions anywhere. I extracted KEM into a folder within the K-Melon program folder and tried to open "kmextman.exe" - absolutely nothing happens. Then I tried to open "keith.exe" inside the KEM folder. It asks for an extension file. I tried both an extracted and unextracted file and it would only reply that I had to open it from within the "Install" folder in the root K-Melon folder. There is no such "Install" folder.

I have opened the "keith.au3" file in NoteTab, but have no idea how to integrate it with K-Melon. There is no "Extension Manager" anywhere on my menu options - especially not on Tools.

I thought I'd switch to K-Melon from FF because FF has gotten so slow and memory-intensive (process requiring 1.6 GB within 5 minutes with only 3 tabs open and only a necessity of FF addons). It crashes 5-6 times a day w/no error message - just disappears. I like the FF addons and despise IE.

Unfortunately, it seems FF has a lot of geeks sitting around with nothing to do to establish their necessity, so they keep adding to FF whatever comes to their mind, whether it's needed or not, and as a result FF has deteriorated into a disaster over the many years I've used it. It had been my favorite since one of its earliest versions. No more! Sorry, FF - I didn't abandon you, you abandoned the user.

I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium on a dual-core desktop Compaq with 3Gb RAM and about 4 terrabytes of storage.

I've not gone through all 3,000+ posts in this section because it would take forever - since search found nothing.

Can anyone put together a simple tutorial or instructions on how to integrate these extensions into K-Meleon. My inability do that (at this point) would be a deal-breaker and I would have to keep searching for a browser that will work.

I can't seem to preview this (Error 503 service unavailable), so I guess I just have to go ahed and post it - if that will even work.

I had already tried the 1st link and downloaded it. Macros are activated. But there IS NO EXTENSION MANAGER show under TOOLS on any of the drop-down menus.

Link #2 - Sanford has the same problem but no one told him how to fix it. Extension Manager simply does not show up on the Tools Menu.

Link #3 - I did unzip all .kmm files and put them in the macros folder. I checked the program folder and loader.exe is there, so I have to assume (from the available instructions) that it automatically loads before K-Meleon loads.
