... but the basic components of IE are still available to other programs. It is possible to remove IE completely, as was done (sort of) in Europe, but too much enthusiasm makes sure that "useful" things like the Quick-Launch on the Taskbar also disappear. In fact, W98 becomes only W95 with some extras. The integration was very complete. W98++ was designed to be a "Web Exte

I think Internet Explorer was originally also derived from Netscape - correct? No. It was a rework of Spyglass Mosaic. Having said that, in a highly competitive arena the Browser War between Netscape and Microsoft ensured that whatever appeared in one would very soon be seen in the other. Due to Netscape's efforts, M$ was playing catch-up until 1997 when (at last) M$ actually listened to i

browser.display.use_system_colors;true ====================== donot work in all 76versions, do you have any idea to fix that? Just check browser.display.use_document_colors If that's true, then system colours should not work.

G'day paulderdash - You may want to consider that what Adguard is doing is actually a MITM attack, and as such is introducing a security hole in your system. Avast--and almost all security software--is also doing it now. The Adguard Certificate will actually replace whatever Site Certificate is supposed to be presented to your browser. Read Security Week for more detail. FWIW, I and many o

It's better to contact the web operators and tell them of the problem. I've noticed that much of the time they have simply forgotten to renew :O and most of those are happy I've reminded them. If you're continuing to add exceptions, it would be wise to avoid wifi connections. CAT 5/6 connections are very difficult to break into, but anything over WLAN or wifi is at risk. I know it can be..

KM 76RC(1) here, the link works quite well. You may want to play with UA strings, although for this I'm using what I consider to be very generic KM: "Mozilla Gecko rv:38.0 K-Meleon 76.0 20160503", but it's not what Dorian shipped :P Some videos are geo-locked, and it's needful to enable Flash (!!!!!) for all of them, but the ones that do play are very good. I'm not sure Opera Pres

... it would also be nice (when downloading several files) to not have several separate "windows" (that have to be closed) but rather a list of all in one single window (as Maxthon does).

That's almost certainly an internal engine feature, that means should work the same in FF and KM (in theory). Just different settings. To some extent. Some apps don't have auto-scroll, NotePad is, erm, "noteable" for not having it :) and nor does Ted Notepad. But also Lotus software generally. Autoscroll is built in to the OS, and programs need to enable it. To a large extent

Uh, you kidding??? :O KM shall be unusable out-of-box on tons of important sites, with the purpose to educate the site authors, but in reality the only victims are us users??? Sorry, no way. The userbase of KM would instantly drop to near zero!

I have started getting messages that I cannot use some sites in HTTPS mode because the security is not good enough. What is the highest level KM can handle? Are there any options a user can do to increase the security? I have tried in 75.1, 76RC and 76RC2. I don't think this user agent related. One site mentioned TLS, but I don't remember the specific message. Hi JamesD - The highes

Again Mega.nz got incompatible with Gecko 31 (KM75). Hi rodocop - the only problem I found with https://mega.nz is the antique and broken SSL they use. The other site, https://eu.static.mega.co.nz/, uses TLS, probably because it's based in Europe where people generally seem to be a bit smarter :) And it also seems to be problem-free. I've set all my browsers except Opera to use TLS, so i

I have noticed that when using KM-76RC2 that I am not taken to the correct place in the forum if I click on the "NEW" or "Last Post" links. These seem to work fine in KM-75.1 version. It happens to me also, but only on this forum. I've noticed in the past there are some odd things in the forum engine-room, so I don't now take much notice. If this behaviour was replicate

Interaction between a remote server and the clipboard is a security and privacy issue. I'd never allow it ... Yogi, what do I need to tweak (in Config??) to disable access to the clipboard? EDIT: Found it. I think. In about:config find dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled, and toggle it to false. This is supposed to prevent websites from hearing your bowsers' on-event signals. I do no

No, probably not Gecko. I've just opened snag.gy, done what it said and saw the success. Having said that, it was quick and dirty as I did not open an account, so I was not logged in & etc. But it did work, see sig for sordid details. I only have pop-ups and Flash blocked, and my default UA string is <Mozilla Gecko rv:38.0 K-Meleon 76.0 20160503>. EDIT: update global UA to ref

I mean custom build set up as close to max public privacy as possible. So we can make some 'mental junction' between KM and 'private solution' I'm with Yogi on this one. He correctly points out that "our browser" is recognisable, but our person is not. I agree that it may be possible to track my browser through a site where my personal details are (for whatever reason) visible,

Re-route in your HOSTS file to 0.0.0.0. The connection should be dropped instantly in this case. 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 :O (source: There's no place like 127.0.0.0) ...

... which probably means that my hosts file is being ignored by that browser. Ummm, no. Hosts is supplied and used by the OS. Browsers send a request for a file, the OS looks at the hosts file and if there is an entry the appropriate action is taken. This is either a re-route to local-host (127...) or to a specialised IP different from the usual, possibly to direct the browser to an infra-w

At line 257, we have a <noscript>, which is exactly like the one found in the <head> of OspreyPacks here. This <noscript> is invoking an image from Facebook, and I reckon this is causing the crash. Possibly you can test this by disabling images in your Privacy menu, just hit F9 to toggle it. I've run DuoLingo through the W3C Unicorn, there are 333 CSS errors in 3 Cloudfr
