Almost every time I run Kmel, I receive a notice asking if I want to download the latest Kmel. Here's the version I am running: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:24.0) Gecko/20140105 Firefox/24.0 K-Meleon/74.0. As far as I know, this is the latest Kmel. Why am I still receiving update notices? How do I get them to stop?

When I use Firefox 31 to browse I see a lot of favicons that aren't shown by K-meleon by this single preference settingEeek! :O A user of FF got loose in these hallowed halls. Call the exterminator! Only kidding, of course. I use FF once in a while when I want to do penance for my sins. It's a few inches slower than Kmel. The only browser I have found to be a teeny-weeny nanosecond faster

The case of Amazon is exactly this: a lazy webmasters that doesn't set the favicon, but then comes the browser to show it.It's not just Amazon. Hardly any of the sites I visit don't show favicons without the fix you provided. Lack of favicons on tab labels makes it difficult to discern the identity of each tab when I open a lot of them. For me, therefore, a favicon isn't just another pretty f

Playing and playing, as it needs a restart... it is this: browser.chrome.favicons That preference is set as false by default in K-meleon (playing fair). If you want to go other browsers path (not playing fair) set it to true.True worked! Truly it did. (^_^) Thanks a lot!!!

I'm using the final release version 74.0. Grrreat!! Only issue I have is that the website icons all show that green gear-looking thingie. E.g., the Amazon site shows the green gear thingie & not the Amazon icon. I did the following in an attempt to correct this problem: Preferences > GUI appearance > Display website icons (check) > In the title bar (check). Then I restarted Kmel

I tried full screen on YouTube. The screen went full, YouTube posted a message that it was full screen, there was sound, BUT the screen stayed black. Can any of you folks get fullscreen at YouTube? If so, what is my likely problem?

I will stay with XP until pigs fly. :O My main protections are: 1- I image my C drive every 2 days, & retain images at least 2 months FIFO. (If I ever get infected, I will simply restore a clean image and POOF! it's yesterday. Or last week. Or whatever day preceeded the infection.) 2- I surf the net with my browser protected by Malwarebytes Anti-exploit (MBAE). In fact, all of my inte

I just found this new Kmel beta at BetaNews Forum. I installed it & am using now, even as I type this post. EXCELLENT!!! Stable. Really really really fast. I love it. I posted news of this beta at the Wilders Forum HERE. I have protected this browser with MBAE, as I do for my 2 other browsers as well (Firefox, Slimboat). P.S. Where's the button for logging into this forum?

Another good alternative to Key Scrambler is KeePass. It's free. Works with ALL browsers. Just use its auto-type obfuscation & it gives good protection against keyloggers. In general, apps that scramble inputs (virtual keyboards, safe keys, key scrambler, etc) only protect from a relatively narrow spectrum of the latest advances in online information-stealing technology. Some of the newer o

Strange... Are you really 100% sure that your new toolbar name in toolbars.cfg is exactly "Javascript button"?? And the new macro has the ending .kmm not .kmm.txt, and is in a macros folder?THANKS!!! Mea culpa Mea culpa! I had failed to follow Fred's instructions to make it .kmm & not .kmm.txt. I have fixed that gaffe & now it works perfectly! @Fred- Manifold apologies.

Save as jsbutton.kmm and put it into the folder "macros" inside the K-Meleon main folder. If the button should not work correctly, create a new separate profile, to look if it works there. Fred I saved the revised jsbutton.kmm. The change had no evident effect on what I reported earlier. I then created a new profile, per your suggestion. Still no effect. The button insists on r

@JamesD- I tried your suggestion but nothing happened. So I undid all of the changes. I guess I need really step-by-step instructions such as those provided by Fred. Sorry. @Fred- It works, but with one minor glitch. The button is there, and it does toggle between JS on/off. However, the button stays red all the time except when I float my cursor over it, during which time it temporarily turns

I usually leave Java Script (JS) turned on but there are certain sites (such as CBS news sites) where JS screws up the display. To turn JS off, I now must do Tools>Privacy>Block Java Script. It would be very handy if the Tool Bar had a toggle button for easily turning JS on & off. Is such a thing available?

Egocentric people who crank up the number of connections to a server beyond reasonable limits are in effect launching a small denial of service attack against a server, creating excessive server load and tying up connections that others could use, particularly on small servers. This point is well understood in the realm of download managers, where anything more than two connections for large files

Test your browser's max connections at... http://stevesouders.com/hpws/max-connections.php K-meleon loaded the full complement of pictures on my computer. Firefox loaded much fewer. This doesn't necessarily mean that one browser is better than another BECAUSE of max connections. It's just something to know & ponder (if it is your wont to ponder.)

This IS a K-meleon topic. Please be patient with me while I set the stage. An infection by malware -- viruses, trojans, worms, etc -- is very INCONVENIENT. In a worst case scenario, you might even have to format your HD & reinstall the OS & your apps. (Hopefully, you use disk imaging software, so all you would need to do is restore a clean image.) A keylogger, on the other hand, can

But sorry, I must join the others, you cannot possible claim to be "new" (neo) at K-Meleon, nor even a beginner of using that browser :cool: "neo" origines from "new", and I just feel strongly this refers to time, not skills or any qualities.Okay, I am not a neophyte (beginner). Ergo, when it comes to browser design, I am *feckless*. (^_^) Aloha, Bellgamin ~~~

I am now able to specify a custom location for K-mel's cookies. Thus, MAXA is now able automatically to locate the cookies for all 11 browsers installed on my computer (my prior post explains why I have so many browsers.) MAXA also spots Web Bugs &

1- I use MAXA Cookie Manager. It works fine for all my browsers except K-mel. I wrote MAXA support about this. They asked me IF K-mel's file "profiles.ini" is located in the following folder... C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\K-Meleon\ 2- I told MAXA that the above folder exists, but it is empty. Instead, the "profiles.ini" file is located in... C:\Program File
