Yes, I see what you mean, siria. Do you remember the very early days of computer "help" forums on the web? I sure do! After a few months it was obvious that questions or problems get resolved if large groups of users need the same info. That's why the same questions are asked and answered indefinitely. Don't get me wrong, I've solved countless problems searching forums. They

Hello fred from nl. Sorry for not returning to this thread sooner. I was not familiar with Orbit Downloader, so I read the CNET reviews. This app is packed with junkware. Here is the review from CNET: http://download.cnet.com/Orbit-Downloader/3000-2071_4-10600926.html Unless the editors' review is complete bunk, it would be wise to pick a different download manager. Maybe someone

You probably have a plugin for a popular download manager like FlashGet. If the file you select is a direct link, FlashGet will launch with the correct URL. Frequently, the link is a redirect or one of many complex tricks used to hide the real URL. If your manager starts it will not load the correct URL. More often than not, it won't start at all. If the manager is started manually, the dis

siria, I'm beginning to regret bothering all you smart people with my foolish ideas. I'm not sure what you're suggesting. In other words, is there any way to get a newer version of K-Meleon to run with 98SE and KernelEx? You must understand, I'm just a K-Meleon user. I don't know anything about all the different versions and customized variations of this browser. All the references yo

I'm not surprised an Illegal Operations box appeared when I attempted to run K-Meleon 1.6. Here is the info: K-MELEON executed an invalid instruction in module IMGLIB2.DLL at 019f:01db5477.

I apologize for that "bloated" remark. A complex app with many features doesn't mean (to me, anyway) that it's bloated. If an app has numerous useful features that improve performance and provides the user with a better experience then it's definitely not bloated. A truly "bloated" app is bogged down with options that no one cares about or rarely uses. OK, I'm going

You guys are amazing! I genuinely appreciate all your replies! I've tried and abandoned more browsers than I can remember. Most were poor to awful. I think you'll agree with me when I say that K-Meleon loads web pages faster than any other browser. It never had endless settings and options like some of the more bloated browsers, but it runs like a race car and that's all that really mat

I'm a partner in a business that switched to Linux Distros a few years ago. I keep a copy of 98SE at home because it was customized for my business when we started the company. I also still use command line DOS scripts. Anyway, I've been jumping around the web trying to get all the info I can about updating my older version of K-Meleon (1.5.4) to 1.7. I'm kind of lost.

A plugin is not a program (you know, app). My favorite download manager is FlashGet. There are thousands of free download managers. If you want FlashGet here is the publisher: http://www.flashget.com/index_en.html The 7z archive or the installer package (npfg11.exe) contain the files needed for a K-Meleon plugin. Plugins are like a set of directions pointing to a program. If you

Hello JamesD. Thanks for your reply. During my search for a K-Meleon FlashGet plugin, I was not surprised to find lengthy discussions about creating plugins for K-Meleon. There was much disagreement about using plugins not specifically created for K-Meleon. The installer package npfg11.exe works perfectly. Set the pathname to the K-Meleon Plugins folder. You can download the same file

I'm sure this is very old news, but when I was searching for the FlashGet plugin installer, every link I found was dead. Several Google searches listed pages at this forum and many other download sites. Finally, I found this long list of FTPs. All the links at filewatcher are good. http://www.filewatcher.com/m/npfg11.exe.247026-0.html I've got FlashGet working with K-Meleon when I sele

Thank you Mala. I've been using computers for decades, which means I know how to work from the command line and create scripts. However, I am not a professional programmer. If these kmdownload files require a high level of programming knowledge, they're definitely not for me. What is the +NS file, and how it used to add the NoScript extension?

NoScript Extension: http://noscript.net/ It says you can install this extension in any mozilla-based browser. I use K-Meleon frequently, but I've never tried to install additional plugins or extensions. I found a document about NoScript and K-Meleon while googling. If what I read is correct, the procedure is a complete nightmare! Is there an "easy" way to add NoScript to K

I've got a captcha problem that is beyond insane, if such a thing is possible! I'm a partner in a small business. Several times each month I login to a website where I spend major dollars buying products for our business. Their captcha system is like a chronic disease. Unlike most retail or B2B sites that require you to type the four letter captcha when you first setup an account, this s

Yes JamesD, that sure looks like the way to disable the password manager. Crazy me, I was looking for something that actually referred to the password manager. Maybe the K-Meleon developers could add "password manager" with a tick box to the next version. But hey, why make things too easy! Thanks JamesD, I appreciate the reply.

I've used the last several versions of K-Meleon, including the latest - 1.5.4. After awhile, the password manager stops prompting me with a confirmation dialog box. Not sure why. Can I disable the password manager? It's not listed under Edit > Preferences. It must be listed somewhere, but I can't find it. Thanks guys.

I found a thread about adding a FlashGet plugin to K-Meleon. By the time I reached the end of the thread my brain had turned to mush! I wasn't sure what file(s) to download, how to get the plugin working, etc. Completely my fault. I couldn't follow the instructions. Has someone put together a package that would simplify integrating FlashGet with K-Meleon? Thanks guys.

Thanks JamesD. I emailed Mow Products a couple of days ago. No reply. At least I know this problem is not unique to my ISP. About four years ago I spent many hours searching for a place to buy reasonably priced mower parts. Mow Products price and quality is amazing! I hate sharpening mower blades. With Mow Products you can use a blade several times and junk it. Sears will sell yo

I'm trying to load the site mowproducts.com. It may not be important to you, unless you have a backyard that's more like a tropical jungle! I've never had any problems in the past accessing Mow Products with IE or K-Meleon. If I type Mow Products into Google and select "cached" their homepage will load, but none of the links work.

WOW!! A nice, simple cookie with the name "Google" in Windows cookie folder (or some other folder) is badly needed with this browser. The idea is to save the Google cookie so you don't have to set your preferences each time you use the search engine. I read the info from the link you provided, JamesD. Why does K-Meleon have to make the process of managing cookies so comple

I almost always clear all of K-Meleon's caches when I close the browser. Google has added a feature that is ususally very annoying to me. Under I always tick off "Do not provide query suggestions in the search box." If I was using IE the cookie Google creates is easy to find. I can't find anything in the directory where K-Meleon is installed or in "C:\WINDOWS\Applicati

You are absolutely correct, desga2! When Microsoft first created the Windows Registry most people instantly hated it. Not me. I'm a old command line junky. In the early days of Windows I spent most of my time manipulating and fixing Windows bugs by hacking the Registry. If all my friends and colleagues switched to a Linux distro I would never use Windows again. Vista is so bad most

I just upgraded from 1.1.3 to 1.1.4. I keep telling myself that this browser has so many limitations I should stop using it. I can't. It loads pages faster than all the others. Also, its a great platform to test an unstable site. Before there were browsers like Firefox and K-Meleon, it was almost impossible to visit numerous sites that might crash IE or your entire system.

When I was a kid I remember buying a few copies of "Ripley's Believe It Or Not." It was usually sold next to the comic books. The fact that KM cannot save a web page for viewing offline should qualify as an addition to Ripley's! A couple of days ago I thought I saved several pages using KM. All I got were several odd shortcuts, similar to an item you might add to your favor

The first time I used K-Meleon I went to the most graphics intensive website I could think of. The speed at which K-Meleon loaded those pages was simply amazing. The awful things that happen with Microsoft's IE has kept me away from this browser, except for downloading the endless stream of patches and critical updates for Windows. You're right JamesD.

Several folks told me to try K-Meleon. They said it loaded web pages faster than any other browser. It is very fast. I've used K-Meleon for several hours and there are two problems I hope can be fixed. I imported my IE bookmarks (favorites). You can add a page to the favorites list, but you can't edit the shortcut without opening Windows Explorer. The changes you make do not take e
