AFAIK, plugin.scan.plid.all defines search in system folders. Setting it to false doesn't prevent KM from finding plugins in its own secondary subfolders (liке browser/plugins). That's correct. I have plugin.scan.plid.all disabled myself. :) I didn't meant plugins in its own secondary subfolders (liке browser/plugins) but system folders.

I use /browser/plugins and I'm not sure about root. Root directory, the topmost directory of a hierarchical file system. In this case: K-meleon root\plugins = main folder: K-Meleon\ subfolder: plugins The above is the standard/classic way. However K-Meleon will scan for plugins during start-up (plugin.scan.plid.all) and will find them in other (sub)folders too.

My suspect is that some websites opening a cascade of additional smaller windows are the reason for this problem. Is there a way to prevent such "attacking" openings? Open Browser Configuration (about:config) and change for dom.popup_maximum the default value to 3. See if it helps.

@lroixx Many of us are from Europe. Some of them tried to connect to your problematic site in order to test and see if they can help. All of them got a time-out -> the computer tries to connect for 120 seconds to the desired server until it gives up. Every server owner has the right to block undesired visitors but there is a codex among civilized people. Namely, you tell those visitors th

Now with the US and CA being rather closely related, am not quite ruling out yet that country sniffing thing ;-) Right so Siria. I get a time-out with both, the latest Firefox ESR 45.4.0 and Opera Presto. I fired up Tor and with a Canadian exit node (167.114.89.195 - tor-node.golden-gryphon.com) I could reach the site without any problem using K-Meleon 75.1. :)

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.

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.
