K-Meleon is an extremely fast, customizable, lightweight web browser
based on the Gecko layout engine developed by Mozilla which is also
used by Firefox. K-Meleon is free, open source software released under
the GNU General Public License and is designed specifically for
Microsoft Windows (Win32) operating systems.

K-Meleon is prone vulnerable to crashing with a very long URL...
Internal web pages like about:neterror does not limit the amount of
chars that a user put in 'c' 'd' params and them if we compose a
malformed url the browser can be chash easy.This issue is exploitable
via web links like click here or via
window.location.replace('very long url') or similar vectors.
