4923Re: [NTB] Browsers.dat changes
- Nov 30, 2004Hi Harvey, Don, and Others,
Let's take this over to the NoteTab and HTML list. Once we discuss
this out *again*, ;) I'll add any new information to the
different things tried and have some success and then post it
over on that list. Most people wanting to use the View in Browser
and View in Other Browser are doing HTML work, so it's best that
we don't bother the folk on this list, the NoteTab Basic list
with all this. I think we are getting very repetitious also. Once
I get my compilation finished, we can just refer people to it.
Thanks! (Yes, it should be an FAQ Don, actually, it is one of the
FAQs I have been working on for my site, but it's not ready to
announce yet though) More below...

of browsers: NetScape, Mozilla, FireFox, etc., not just Mozilla,
the actual Mozilla browser. There are quite a few that cannot get
it working correctly either from NoteTab. I'm one of them using
your code below with modifications for my machine. Mine works
better if I use -browser instead of -quiet. If I use -quiet no
page is loaded. If I use -browser, I get a page, but it is like a
full screen mode. Only the Titlebar and the page is shown. I do
have mine configured in the Other Browser Shift+F8.
; Command=E:\Browsers\Mozilla\mozilla.exe -quiet
I went back to putting it in the Other Browser (Shift+F8) and
changed the Application to the name .exe name and took out the -
browser or -quiet and it works in View Other Browser now, but
always opens a new window. I have to change mine back so that it
will reuse the same window. I can live without the ToolBar, etc.
