That's weird that it won't work.
The one other thing that might be worth trying is:
(freeware) SetBrowser http://www.pc-tools.net/win32/freeware/gui/
that the various methods each browser has for setting itself as default
don't always do everything required. This program seems to get everything
neccessary (eg. to make sure you can get to the browser of your choice from
Outlook Express). This shouldn't be necessary though to get to either
MainBrowser or OtherBrowser from Notetab. I've flipped them back and forth
from one browser to another w/o ever having the problem Pixie describes.
If you've got several of IE, (an IE based browser eg. MyIE2, NetCaptor,
Sleipnir), Mozilla, MozillaFirebird, and Opera you could try several of them
one after another - maybe their respective behaviors will provide a clue.
One oddity I've noticed is that sometimes if I've got one of the IE-based
browsers open a request to open a page in one of the other IE-based browsers
sometimes gets opened in the one already open - probably not related to
either yours (Pixies's) or Julies problems.
Julie: When you described your problem I realized that I usually already
have M-F open. I just tried closing M-F, then opening a page in it from
Other Browser. I got the popup asking which user-code to use (I have mine
set that way), then M-F opened, and put the file I was trying to open:
in the address bar but gave a 404 saying:
>> couldn't find the site named...
Check that the name is correct. If so, the site may have changed or may no
longer exist <<
I immediately tried to open it again, and this time it worked. I don't know
whether its an initalization/timing problem or whether diddling with
browser.dat parameters would be able to correct the problem ...
