Re: [NTB] FireFox
- Hi Lee and Others,
I don't think you will come to a solution with any of the
Mozilla, Firebird, NetScape, etc. browsers that is going to work
on all machines. Some people get lucky, but most not. You've
pretty much wore it out for the NoteTab Basic list. If you still
want to try to get it going, please take it over to the Off Topic
list. Please see my signature line to subscribe to it. TIA!!! Or
go to the following link for all the lists sign on/off.

From Jody, last November (regarding Fire*bird*, but same beast more
or less, different name):
I use Avantbrowser (an IE shell) as my default browser, and thus
when I pressed CTRL+T in NTP, the current doc would open in it. The
two alternates (toolbar icons, or F8 and Shift+F8) were set up in
Browsers.dat as Firebird and Opera. Well after reading Jody's
message (above URL), I put the command line for Firefox ...
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" ^**
into the "Custom Launch" box in View | Options | Tools, and changed
the "Main Browser" (View | Options | Internet) to be Avant (which is
described in Browsers.dat).
So I can now bring up the document in Firefox via CTRL+T, or press
F8 to bring it up in Avant, or Shift+F8 to bring it up in Opera.
And I'll shut up now, since I see Jody is telling us to "move it"
and I'd like to stay in his good graces -- at least for the time
being -- especially now that he helped solved my problem almost four
months before I asked! :)
- Hi Jelks and Others,
Actually, this would have been better on the Clips or even more
so on the HTML List. (Once we leave the realm of MS Internet
Explorer; we went advanced, beyond basic <big grin>.)
I really didn't read all the thread that close. I didn't know you
just wanted to get the page open. Yes, Custom Launch should have
done it and a Clip basically using the commandline that goes in
Custom Launch. It can see how to be done in the regular Help
under Clip Basics: Using the Clipbook to launch other programs.
(If you cannot figure it out from there using the "^**" example,
please do sign up for the Clips list or download my Clip
tutorial. It'll be covered in the first or second lesson with
very little geek speak if any at all. <g>
The following is a download for a Clipbook programming tutorial
designed to walk you through Clip writing. It includes "Getting
Started" (which is a web page with a number of images displaying
different parts of NoteTab that deals with Clipbooks), making a
Clipbook Library, adding Clips, and editing Clips, on to more
difficult Clip writing. Be sure to read the Introduction also.
Open ClipTut.clb and then click on the ClipTut.otl Outline Clip
to open the Outline.
All the contents of the zip files go in NoteTab's Libraries
You can also sign up for the NoteTab Clips List to get answers to
Clip questions, but please do not post there concerning the
tutorial. NoteTab Clips Subscribe & Edit Options:

people. I was the other half :-)
between the clip and that however, I think most of us got it going.
- This works for me:
my browsers.dat entry:
Command="C:\Program Files\AmbPF\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
I'm using Tabbrowser extensions and on its options page - Advanced:
Enable/Disable DDE support by needs automatically = ON
FWIW: On the same page I have:
Open tabs instead of windows for
New windows opened by Other Applications = ON
I suspect the Enable/Disable DDE option is the critical one.
Let me know whether it works for you
Regards ... Alec
