A recent investigation by Yahoo has confirmed that a copy of certain user account information was stolen from our network in late 2014 How nice of them for advising their customers so quickly. what we believe is a state-sponsored actor. 'State-sponsored hacking' is a nice political spin used often lately. So we are assured that it wasn't a lapse on their part which got exploited by some rando

K-Meleon's code is based on Firefox ESR. Firefox doesn't have the MP4 decoder built-in natively because MP4 is a proprietary codec. AFAIK, Google and Microsoft are coowners of that codec. However if the OS has the splitter/decoder built-in, Firefox will use it to play MP4 files. Same applies for K-Meleon. On Windows7 I can watch MP4 streams or locally saved MP4 files with K-Meleon.

@Mark Blain K-Meleon's code is based on that of Firefox ESR. Newest Firefox ESR have pdf.js built in. Hence a future version of K-Meleon will probably have it built in as well. As handy as it might look at first glance, keep in mind that this feature might pose security and privacy risks. IMHO, best practice is to disable this feature in browsers and open PDF-files with a dedicated viewer wh

I haven't googled about this problem, so I don't know if it's common or just a glitch with my operating system. I'm extremely reluctant to walk away from my favorite browser, but what else can I do? You might want to read this thread first. More precisely - it would make sense to specify if incopatible sites work with the Firefox(Gecko) version K-meleon's code is based on. In case they

By bundling security updates with non-security patches and installing them via a rollup, users will be forced to install whatever Micro$oft wants you to have which is undoubtedly going to include telemetry patches and other dubious snooping apps. Not only that but like JohnHell points out, from October 2016 Microsoft will push those cumulative updates on Win7 and Win8.1 too. It means that you

Now about JonDoFox - as I combined it with K-Meleon I was able to test it - and it really does the job of antifingerprinting. It was tested on 2 tests mentioned by me earlier. Aren't you recognized here each time you do the test? Well, try this test I did test last year with quite modest results, I mean cross-browser detection didn't work during my tests. Their software was already at v2. I

Yes, the only way to hide yourself is to use anonimous profile (like one in JonDoFox) I have my doubts regarding that magic profile of JonDoFox. I assume that it's primarily advertisment for their product. However if you have the necessary time and intentness, you could install the JonDo-Portable and take a closer look at prefs.js of their Firefox browser. I assume all changes are made there. I

Your IP are fairly unique already. AFAIK most people in Germany have dynamic assigned IP-numbers. Even with a static IP-number the remote server can see only the gateway. Behind a gateway can be dozens of computers. Web bugs, the content of Your cache, flash cookies can be used. I have disk cache disabled - no noticeable delay on a fast connection and a decent device.

And in that is suggested Torbutton, which I had not heard of before. Bear in mind that support of Torbutton has ceased. The End of Torbutton The above article is dated, May 2nd, 2011. As for Torbrowser it's overkill for everyday browsing. It will slow down your browsing and might break (some? many?) sites.

Interaction between a remote server and the clipboard is a security and privacy issue. I'd never allow it even so it will break some sites (e.g. Facebook

I was mistaken. The reason therefore is main.kmm. If you take a closer look at it you will see: togglepref(INT,$pref_Cookies,2,0); It means that as soon as somebody will toggle cookies off/on, the pref will change to "all" cookies allowed and will remain so.

As far as I recall the default setting for 3rd-party cookies is "on" in K-Meleon. You could easily test with a fresh install of KM75 or KM76 and prove me wrong if I'm mistaken. :)

If I recall exactly, the nagging screen for Win10 came also with a 'recommended' update and it wasn't the only offender among those updates. :) Since I install only security fixes I got spared by such annoyances. http://fun.drno.de/pics/english/crush_ransomware.jpg As for Win10 which is OT here, you can't scrap all the telemetry junk. Only viable option seems to be at router lever. However,

I can't tell what kind of modifications MS made to the OS through its recommended and optional updates. All I can tell is that since W2k, now I'm on Win7, I install only security updates and never had any problems. If it was me, I'd uninstall all recommended and optional updates and if something would go wrong I'd rather reinstall the OS. If you don't have a CD for a fresh install you could m

Actually Win8.1, and possibly Win10 also, need to have 0.0.0.0 in hosts because Microsoft altered their "TCP loopback interface" in Win8.1 Attention to those re-routing to 0.0.0.0 in their HOSTS file and using a network diagnosting tool.

In the case of Duolingo.com, FF and KM kept waiting for a connection to Facebook Re-route in your HOSTS file to 0.0.0.0. The connection should be dropped instantly in this case. Since it didn't stop the other browser, however, I assumed it was ignoring either my localhost setting, or the entire hosts file.

No probs with duolingo.com here. Checked with both KM75 and KM76RC. However I didn't test with clean installs. I don't use any sort of 'safe DNS' and have disabled my HOSTS file during checking.

@Chanson Yu As a second thought - did you also test with a clean fresh (portable) install so you can rule out any interference of a third party script?

As I said, first run gives error pokemon in EVERY browser. Just reload to see real picture. Just want to confirm Rodocop. At first attemt I got the pokemon 403 Forbidden header response. At second attempt I was offered the content. See screenshot. For convenience and out of laziness, this time I only tested with a fresh (portable) install of Firefox ESR 45.2.0.

Now it is getting tiresome and nerving. I think, too, that KM developers need a more user-centered approach to accountability regarding their "packaged product". No ethical company would knowingly and intentionally distribute a product containing a faulty component made by another company, right? Why would KM's expert developers do this? Just because they are volunteers? All the

As for the K-Meleon page crashing you browser, as far as I can recall, you are the only one experiencing it. 1. Others are experiencing the crash.

Well, big RAM also could be the reason of issue: malformed script may lead to aggressive RAM loading - but KM freezes (or crashes) after it gets up to 2Gb RAM for it's process (being the 32-bit app). As far as I can see in my task manager, the RAM that K-Meleon has to handle doesn't climb over 350MB. There's still much room till 2000MB.

@mikeyww Your hardware is ok. K-Meleon 76RC should fly on it. I've tested your link with a new fresh install of KM76RC (7z package). I didn't touch any setting, have left everything at its defaults. The site loads and works fine. No crash. See the attached pic. I'm afraid it's something at your end but have no idea what it could be. We both have similar hardware except yours supplies the
