I had the same problem briefly, it seems without explicit instructions K-M was trying to go to http translate google rather than https translate google :O BUT, just for laughs, check in about:config that you have the following values: security.ssl.allow_unrestricted_renego_everywhere__temporarily_available_pref;false security.ssl.enable_alpn;false security.ssl.require_safe_negotiatio

Read this thread (to the end) and try set it by yourself. Thanks rodocop, it works :) I even remembered to set encoding to UTF :cool: G'day guenter - it does seem to me that maybe the whole MimeTypes thing should be part of the K-M package. Nothing wrong with learning to be a geek, but many folks don't have that ability and give up when some file cannot be rendered from the browser.

MIME types are available through about:preferences page ('Applications' tab) Thanks rodocop. How do I add applications? In about:config? Gordon.

Bonza work, cob! Yer blood's worth bottlin'! But... "Please Sir, can I have more?" The MimeType thingy doesn't work :( KM keeps telling me it doesn't know what to do with anything :mad: Gordon.

Merry New Year to all - John - I have sort of the same problem in W7HPx64 SP1. Sometimes I'll close K-M, then later open it again, it often comes back saying it didn't close properly and would I like to use the previous session? Other times it will load and run with no problems, then do strange things. Then I open Task Manager and find I've got two or three instances running... FWIW, on m

Guess it makes more sense anyway if such comprehensive stuff is tested by people actually using KM74 fully and online. Been testing it a day or so... Works OK putting .xls into the Excel Viewer. It appears there's no in-browser viewer like for .pdf, but maybe that's because I don't have MS Office on this box. The actual adding of MIME types is a bit kludgy, but they show up in F2 and tha

Go to about:addons and look whether You have a real mimetypes editor. I restarted it anyway, on general principles. But that's a nice job there guenter :cool:. Gordon.

Maybe VC 8 and VC 9 but not VC 10 build apps. For 2000 You'd need updates past the last update by MS just like JohnHell wrote. I never actually "installed" any of those. Just find the relevant msvcrxxx.dll and (IIRC!) msvcpxxx.dll, then drop them into the .\windows folder, was it the \System32? :s Over 2 years ago... The box developed Alzheimer's in 2012, the CPU I think, an

Thank you for your effortts, but both Beta 164 (even portable) neither version 74 works in Windows 98 and Windows 2000, even loading in them vcredist.exe and the dll. you say (Windows 2000 Pro Pack 4 just includes it.) This is upsetting, since many of us still use to run old wonderful harware P 2 and P 3, and K-Meleon 1.5 had been as a useful tool, now outdated. ...He put me on the spoor

Hi Dorian - Not sure if this is the best place, but... I've uncovered a couple of bugs, posted in the "Bugs" forum and put up on Flyspray. FS#2 is really serious, as I can't work on FS#7 until it's fixed. However, with 74-31 on its way, maybe FS#2 doesn't matter? :) BUt I can't hold my breath for very long :( Gordon.

Thank You Gordon. Why dropbox when You can overwrite my wiki text? I agree with what I think siria meant: you're the author. Actually your English is quite good. We all think we won't forget a language, but they really are use-it-or-lose-it :( I used to read Paris-Match for fun, and Theodore Storm. Now...

I tried to find the point of failure using Dependency Walker, but due to the SideBySide bug at http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?3,130132, it failed. Dep.Walker was brutal: there are bits missing, so it can't be started for analysis. So we have one possible bug which cannot be tracked down due to another unfixed (probably compile-time) bug. Gordon.

Hi guenter - I've had a look at your work, the touched-up file is in https://www.dropbox.com/s/eq7uoqam904ja57/KmResources.txt?dl=0. I noticed you have made all the folder refs as *nix, I didn't fix anything like that, I stayed with English syntax and grammar.

Update. After thorough testing, it seems the first page on https://support.mozilla.org/ doesn't crash K-M. Only the second page, no matter which one, backwards or forwards, will crash the browser. And every time the faulting module is xul.dll. This time around I had enabled compat. And no, Crash Report doesn't pick it. Gordon.

It doesn't crash for me.(Win7/KM_74-31) Deleted the Cache, went to the original child page, and maybe I should have restarted K-M. Crash, exactly the same as the last. Pointing at xul.dll.

Hi Gordon, just noticed you're extremely busy with the wiki currently... And not sure if you're aware that the Home Page is automatically composed of various extracts from other pages? There may be a few other pages auto-composed pages too. I was feeling rather like Hansel and Gretel. Lost and confused in the Forest.

Apologies if this has already been posted. Had a search result in Mozilla Support Forum > Firefox, and decided to try the parent folder, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions. As soon as the page had (almost completely) rendered, K-M crashed gracefully, with a notice that it had stopped working and would I close it please?. I tried the page a few times, yes it's reproducible. I tr

It hasn't any password protection. Unless MediaFire ads tricked you... No... When the MediaFire page came up I killed it because I had not expected it, then realised I could use DLExpert to get it anyway. I was surprised because usually when I click on a non-executable or unknown MIMEtype K-M will download automatically. I figured MediaFire was interfering with my download. So, as th

For me. Forum is sluggish when the US are in the Net and no matter which browser. And for me the errors are the same with all browsers. It was like that periodically before.:( I have found that opening everything in a new tab gets over the sluggishness, which "sort of" looks like it "may possibly be" something to do with rendering. But rendering in all browsers? N

Seems not due to Km74 A+ To be honest, I cannot see any way KM74 could have such a problem/bug. It is almost certainly a coincidence: It was a long, long time until it first started for me too... However, I must suspect the BadBehavior script noted in my first post above. The various sources do mention time-outs as a side-effect. How long has SourceForge had this script? EDIT

I live in Australia, and it is well-known Oz has the slowest internet in the world. BUT. Every browser I have used to get this forum (Opera 10, 11, 12; IE 5, 6, 9; K-M 1.5, 2.6; Iron 27) has rendered it reasonably quickly, certainly in tune with (for example) Avast.com, Whirlpool.net.au, CNET... Certainly no more than 500ms to get it on-screen, usually much less, not even time to blink. Bu

For a simple reason: Linux only run programs, or script which have 'execution right' set (chmod +x), and USB sticks are formated using FAT32 to allow to use it on all the systems, as Microsoft don't want to use ext4 or ext3 partitions.

...The one thing that could be done, is keep the existing macros and extensions as they are, and make an extra list for those that are already tested with KM74.24, and another list for KM74.31 But from past experience I'd expect them being maintained only very loosely. The one thing that is really NEW now in 74, are the xpi-addons. Perhaps we should create a page specifically for FF-addons?
