Galeon 1.3.3 has some preferences that cannot be set through the gui but are there nontheless. If you have a working mandrake 9.0 galeon configuration, have a look at your ~/.gconf/apps/galeon, there you will find a lot of subfolders and %gconf.xml files. Some of the options will work, i.e. inserting <entry name="tabbed_always_show" mtime="1029161090" muser="foo" type="bool" value="true"/> into ~/.gconf/apps/galeon/UI/Tabs/%gconf.xml will enable the always_show_tabs option that is otherwise not available through the gui (at least I haven't found that option and it was there in galeon 1.2.x). However, some options will not work i.e. <entry name="tabbed_closebutton_insensitive" mtime="1029161088" muser="foo" type="bool" value="true"/>. The reason for this odd behaviour is that 1.3.3 is the development version of galeon and as I understand rewritten for Gnome2 but still lacking some features (or gui for the features). I would love to downgrade my Mandrake 9.1/galeon 1.3.3 to galeon 1.2.9. - alas to no avail sofar. I'm trying to work this out, and if anyone knows howto please post here!!! Hope this helps others. Otherwise I use Mozilla as a fallback.
P.S.: As I gathered from other sources it should be possible to use the mozilla and galeon packages from mandrake 9.0 as a replacement for the current versions. I also read, that this leads to other problems.
