Thank you very much Dorian and others for your hard work to deliver us a fast, light, wonderful browser :) 1. The Popup Blocker needs improvement. Have you tried using a hosts file? http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm It does miracles for me. Does not slow my PC or Surfing down at all. Just download, unzip and double click the exe file, theres also a tutorial inside the archive on ho

Just a hint, nearly all of the wiki is more or less outdated, most parts are ages old. Only the download page, news, a few chapters of the faq and an odd bit here and there still get occasionally updated. But one can always ask in the forum. I've noticed, thats why i'm tring to create my threads as specific as possible so it wqill help for others who might encounter the same problems that i hav

Dorian, i just have a small suggestion; wouldn't it be better to create a thread where you post the minor and major updates to KM but DISABLE comments/replies from other users in that thread? They could still talk about that update/release but in another thread. For Ex: K-Meleon 74 RC (This thread should be resereved only for updates and you should be the only one allowed/able to post there)

Hold down Shift and Ctrl when clicking a link in order to have it open in a background tab. Thats not what i asked, i was talking about if theres a button or key combination on how to open a tab but not focus on it right away. Just like in SeaMonkey (holding down CTRL) Thinking about it, looking at that table, Seamonkey way is far better! Have just switched myself! It additionally allows

Ever since i've started using K-Meleon, i've noticed that i encounter problems downloading files with the .zip extension. They download fine, but after the download has finished the file cannot be opened with any probgram... Noticed this when i tried to download some patches from The Patches Scrolls. Unfortunately this archive downloading issue seems to be rerstricted only to K-Meleon/Gecko

For example if i would go to the KM Forum and would like to open the "General" section in a new tab, how do i do that but KEEP the focus on my current TAB/PAGE? I'n Opera i believe it was by holding down CTRL but with KM, if you hold down CTRL while tring to open a page/section it goes to that new tab imediately.

The interesting part is that this only happens when downloading a file with the .7z extension hosted here, on SourceForge. I downloaded files with the .7z extension hosted on other sites and the download process starts normally without any issues.

For getting illegal files in Central Europe (especially Germany) I much recommend trying to use the Usenet. Either use a test account or a prepaid use. The torrent community is free to use, Usenet isn't. People from Romania, Hungary, Poland, Brzil, Jamaica, Czech Republic and some from Russia seem able to download torrents just fine without having to use seedboxes, VPNs, or proxies.

Well, for downloading bigger and more rare files be them legal to download or not, utorrent works great with K-Meleon. If your talking about downloading videos off sites like Youtube, DailyMotion and so on, you can use: http://catchvideo.net/ or http://en.savefrom.net/ Without needing to install any additional extensions for K-Meleon.

If you press CTRL+F you'll bring up the search bar located at the bottom of your browser. Even tough the searching feature works, after your done using it, you can't close the search bar. Neither by pressing CTRL+F again and neither by clicking the exit button (X) located on the left side of the bar. It will only close if you close your browser. Does anyone else have this problem?

It was saving toolbar position before the updates (at least with AuroraAlpha). I had a backup made of K-Meleon 74 Beta 4 / 1.5.4 (clean with no updates) and copied back the old AuroraAlpha and AuroraAlpha (Large) skin files, but it still does not save position when using those particular skins.

Have a look to View>Toolbars>Lock toolbars. Uncheck it to move your toolbars at your whish. Lock the toolbars again, if you like it. Doesn't work. It resets itself on exit even after i check "Lock Toolbars" EDIT Toolbar arangement works even without having to check "Lock Toolbars" but only with the Klassic and AuroraAlpha (Compact) skins. It does not save positio

James, if it weren't for your patience and wilingness to help i still would't be able to use 100% of KM features. Thanks a bunch! As for the search engine thing, i was able to rectify it with your above instructions, thanks for that too. After 20min of carefully extracting and overwritting every file in KM (after making a backup copy that is) My previous problems have been resolved. Check

That tells me that you are using Beta 4 without any of its four updates. I will install an extra copy on my machine in order to test at your level. What other updates? O.o If you want to change your default to Google, the I think these steps will do that. TOOLS - WEB SEARCH click on "Use as default engine" to remove check. Highlight some word on your current page.

Do you know to which level you have done the updates? The size and date of k-meleon.exe should indicate this level. What exactly do you mean with at "which level i have done the updates" ? Are you talking about conficuration/customiziation settings? Size 2.01 MB (2,108,928 bytes) / Size on Disk 2.01 MB (2,109,440 bytes) Do checks in boxes on other pages stay or revert when you

Did you get a message box saying "KM profile privilege checked successfully"? Idk, the terminal showed and disapeared in a split second i didn't have time to read anything.

K-Meleon 74 Beta 4 / 1.5.4 (but i have enabled don't keep history/clean on exit feature in preferences tough i don't think it should affect KMs settings.

My checkmarks seem to remain even through a restart of KM. I suggest that you try HELP - TROUBLESHOOTING - CHECK PRIVILEGE just to be sure of your writing rights to your profile. Did that at your recommandation, a terminal box appeared briefly and then disapeared. Restared KM, checked All 4 boxes available in F2>Browsing>Finding Websites, after KM restart they were unchecked... Perh

No matter what i mark/check in Browsing>Finding Websites it does NOT remained checked, even after a KM restart.

For make a search when you type at the URL bar: Edit menu > Preference > Browsing in the left panel > Finding websites > URL tab > the checkmark at the bottom. That only enables me to search via the adress bar partially. For example i have to type "google" in the adress bar to get to google instead of just typing a word in the adress bar and instantly googling that

I tried looking in the FAQ but couldn't find anything about this. How can i search from the adress bar directly by using google with no alias key assigned? And how do i create an alias for other sites/search engines? Ex W for Wikipedia Y for Youtube B for Bing ...and so on.

Click on "View" then "Toolbars" and un-check any bar that you do not wish to see. Okay, thank you, that worked. But how do i remove BUTTONS not toolbars? I read on Wikipedia that the only way to do this is by editing the toolbar configuration file. Is there a tutorial for that?
