Also wondering: does anyone know if KM keeps this file active in RAM during a session, like prefs.js? If yes, a protected disc-file wouldn't help much people with extremely long browser sessions... If remote servers can read the RAM then you have a much bigger problem than the issue we are talking about (cookies, passwords, e.t.c.).

Also, as Yogi posted: "In KM-Goanna you can set - network.stricttransportsecurity.enabled to false to achieve the same result." I did both ... is this OK or 'overkill' ??? Basically the same result. Main reason for posting that pref was to show which feature you kill by write-protecting that text file. ... also I found this information: user_pref("network.

Copy the file to a place of your choice. Rename the file, e.g. startupCache.8.little.zip. Now you can open the file with the archiver of your choice and you can examine its content.

Confirmed after renaming the macro. However, deleting the startupCache fixes the problem. If a new macro will be added or an old one renamed, the startupCache has to be deleted before starting K-Meleon.

Some values set by default by KMeleon are included to be sure they are disabled for future releases. Sorry, this is above my head. Could you please give a specific example from your above posted prefs? At KM76RC2 they are not included due the absence of future releases.

@J.G. Your prefs at first glance (I didn't go through all of them) user_pref("fehlt security.ssl3.dhe_dss_aes_128_sha", false); There is no "fehlt" in about:config. All your prefs containing that word are useless. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Before adding a pref check the default one.

Best way to avoid supercookies (not fingerprinting) would be a private mode browsing implemented in K-Meleon. Wonder if workarounds with a second profile folder and tinkering with policies at OS level is the best solution for the average user.

Apparently the HSTS supercookies (fingerprinting) are now stored in a simple separate text file, instead of sqlite: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=2919581 https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?t=14486 Actually the different location is a huge step forward, if that file can now be blocked by simple write-protection (hope it works??) Sorry for replying so late.

It works for sure. I've done it for ages and nothing was written to that file. By doing so you disable a potential security layer at the expense of privacy. It's a personal choice. In KM-Goanna you can set network.stricttransportsecurity.enabled to false to achieve the same result.

@guenter I recall a discussion I had years ago with a dev working for a mainstream browser... I could be wrong but it might have nothing to do with UNIX approach but rather with this. It's not my intention to spark off a new discussion, so please consider this just a sketchy hint.

Off Topic (I apologize but it's easy to harm this browser if you disable the 'wrong' k-plugin or macro and IMHO some k-plugins and macros should be protected better)*. There is no protection against stupidity. But there is hope for the next generation of universal browser for everybody - stupid or smart, happy or unhappy. Nothing to disable, nothing to screw up - it simply works - ou

You are an expert of such stuff, Yogi. Thanks for the flowers but I'm not. :) Always under the condition: those automatics are not FORCED upon expert users who want it different. "FORCED" - exactly that was my point though I'm not an expert user. As long as the user is given a decent choice to quickly override, I couldn't care less with how many predefined override the brow

And I plan ask roytam1 for some possible changes in old modules keeping the same idea in mind: make KM better and more user-friendly. "User-friendly" - this term can be interpreted very broadly. Any chance for disclosing what those changes should accomplish? Wouldn't the Improvement requests forum be best suited for such tasks?

You might be interested in this: https://github.com/MoonchildProductions/Pale-Moon/blob/master/browser/branding/shared/pref/uaoverrides.inc IMHO, for a browser you can control most if not all those prefs are redundant. Of course, if you are a developer and you want to earn some money for your hard work & time invested, you'll opt for a per site override. So you can make sure that the

As I understand it, you are satisfied with the status of quo. I don't exactly undersand what "status quo" refers to. If you mean the way LAVFilters are offered (as a separate download) - yes.

@siria And how can even an advanced user know that the brand-new official package can be "upgraded"? By spending hours reading the forums? And even so, after each browser update those filters have to be "upgraded" too because they will be replaced by the default ones. On the other hand, a download link with a hint, that points to the LAVFilters (as roytam1 did) allows ever

Sounds like those magic LAV-files should most definitely be included :) Unzipped just 3-4% of whole KM-folder-size, that's worth it. It's not about file size but the adequate selection. That's probably the reason roytam1 didn't include them by default. IMHO, leveling them to the least common denominator wouldn't be the most appropriate approach.

FF does not have this feature (or defect). I got it - or I think so at least. Correct me please if I'm wrong: Those memory leaks (in case of embedded vids) can only occur with browsers (e.g. KM-Goanna) using code that makes possible to view MP4-files on systems that don't have native support for H.264. Other browsers (e.g. KM-Gecko or FF) are not affected. To avoid such memory leaks and to

FF has no such features. The standard version of FF is not able to use LAV filters. I knew that. The reason for the screenshot was another. The memory leak caused by some embedded videos you and others experience, doesn't affect FF too? Or is it only my computer where it doesn't show up? In other words, the use of LAV justified in any configuration (it should be strongly recommended!).

Because I have a question. How do You manage to avoid a memory leak? It is almost impossible. Or You have something installed packages, programs, video players or other things that adds the desired component. Or You just wildly lucky :). This is everything installed on my computer and I want to keep it that way - as clean as possible. screenshot All other software I use is portable.

And you do not have a codec pack in your system? Sure? :) I'm absolutely sure! This was a brand-new computer which I formated after delivering (to get rid of preinstalled crap) and then made a fresh (tailored) install of the OS (Win7 x64) from the original CD shipped with the computer.

For thrill-seekers, delete LAV filters (or conduct an experiment on a clean system, e.g. on virtual machine) and open link on Windows7+: http://www.atlantiswordprocessor.com/en/help/atlantips_translation_side_by_side.htm Start video playback. ...
