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! Hi Siria - I deleted SSL two years ago, and had trouble with only 5 or 6 sites, 3 in MicrosoftLand and two Western Australian State Government sit

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) ... FF and KM kept waiting for a connection to Facebook ... You can fix that by getting eDex

... 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

As I said, first run gives error pokemon in EVERY browser. Just reload to see real picture. That's odd. As I said in this post, my other 3 browsers opened PanBaidu on the first visit. At the moment I'm having latency problems, s1.pan.bdstatic is refusing to come to Australia for some reason. If I force the matter by leaning on F5, all browsers show me the bird.

G'day mikeyww - The problem W3C Validator had with this page is the same problem KM76 has. It is more than "just" the <noscript> block, although removing that allowed the full validation. The <noscript> was actually referencing a script... It would never work regardless of which browser you had. And in fact it was not responsible for K-M's crash. The main K-M proble

Removed excess white space from source file, passed it to W3C Unicorn validator. Much pruning in the <head> before sanity returned. Eventually removed a very annoying <noscript> block--I still cannot see what was wrong with it--and wound up with 53 errors and 6 warnings just in the XML. This in conjunction with the CSS debacle would cause almost all browsers to render in the (extr

Interesting. Lit up the Console, cleared it, went to OspreyPacks. The Console gathered a dozen or so CSS, then K-M crashed quietly. Try again, but switch off the CSS error count... I got some chrome on the screen, but nothing in the Console... All crashes happen after a few seconds, say 10-15. I had expected to see XML or JS errors. None.

76RC crashed very quietly on this site. Pale Moon 26.2 x64 handles it well, but we note PM uses "Goanna" rather than Gecko... Opera 12.17x64 and IE11 x32 also open the site. It's educational to run http://www.ospreypacks.com/us/en/series/technical-packs/aether-ariel-landing through the W3C validator. The page is so bad that it essentially gave up after the <body id="page-

For what it's worth, only Pale Moon 26.2x64 and IE11x32 render the PanBaidu page properly. Opera 12.17x64 doesn't get the Flash/HTML5 on the right, but that does not surprise me due to its age. KM just gets the bird. FWIW, on DataFileHost, this is Pale Moon 26.2: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6a5i41khihnknp4/PaleMoon26-2.png?dl=1 and this is KM76RC: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rz2auj9wier5v85/

Further... I cleared the caches on my other browsers, then put all the SSL-secured sites into my host file, and lit the browsers up. And got the same result that KM gave me: a text-view as shown above. Then I cleared the entries. And now all my browsers do what KM does, refusing to load the unsafe elements. But KM was able to override the cache on the first view. I'll have to check my

As JohnHell correctly points out, the primary usage of UDF is in optical media file systems, it's been designed for that purpose. All current versions of Windows understand UDF. Read the Talos report, which explains the problem in tedious detail. The key words are "arbitrary code execution". Where the code comes from is another problem, but it could well be in the extracted file.
