Would it be possible to offer an additional download version as listed below?
It seems to be hard for some newbies to K-Meleon to follow the instructions
given here by others.
The last resort of many sharing their knowledge here, then, is to "create a new profile",
without regard to changes the advised may have made - mostly unknowingly -
to files in the K-M Program Folder
Many Windows users do not realize easily how to avoid creating
a "profile.ini.txt" instead of a profile.ini.
Many newbies suspect the Browser, their OS, or malware as the
culprits for bugs in their K-M installations.
With K-Meleon, it would be easy - and much less taxing for both parties - to
convince them that neither is the case, by offering the following download:
- a zipped basic K-Meleon installation (can be handled by Windows natively)
- portable (profile.ini included, need not touch their previous installation)
- with the instruction to unzip to their Desktops (no writinRights issues)
- without the loader
- without the defaulter
- without AdBlockPlus, for a start, and the advice to install that only after
having installed & tested their other extensions - see note below.
- with an extra read me on HowTo transform that into a proper
local installation as soon as it is complete & satisfying.
(I'd volunteer for that, and I think I have a reference now to prove
I can do this kind of thing - see my post on Sessions/Groups/Nicks
Now, the NOTE
, an extension which I value highly, and without
which I personally would not like browsing for long... but:
Uninstalling Adblock Plus
from The AdBlockPlus K-Meleon Page
Note that deactivating Adblock Plus plugin will only remove it from the user interface, usually the extension will continue blocking in the background. To uninstall Adblock Plus you need to remove all the files
you installed with the ZIP package.
(btw: this does not even mention the case that a user instructed to deactivate
the plugin deactivates the macro only, instead)
(btw2: can we be sure there's no other extension staying active
in the background after deactivating?)
Back again ...
