4924[NTB] Browsers.dat changes
- Nov 30, 2004** moved to NTB-HTML **
hsavage: >> I recall only 1 list responder that said they had
>> FireFox working correctly ...With this browsers.dat definition of Firefox:
Command="C:\Program Files\AmbPF\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
ie. *just the one line* and no DDE stuff and no "-browser" paramater
FFox 1.0 and
Tabbrowser Extensions with with it set to use:
- only tabs and never windows:
- and with:
-- External Links from Other Applications=Open in New Tab
setting Notetab-2nd Browser to [Firefox] I see the following behavior:
- if Firefox is *not* open I get a 404 with an invalid URL
eg: trying to open : C:\TEMP\nospaces.htm
opens two pages - an empty (Untitled) page with the Address bar blank *and*
a second page with the incorrect URL: http://temp/nospaces.htm
- once Firefox *is* open and still displaying the erroneous URL, again
clicking 2nd-browser on the above file this time opens it (and any others)
As an experiment, I closed Firefox, reopened it from its startup shortcut.
This opens correctly and displays my HomePage as it should. Again clicking
2nd-browser on the above file it (and any others) open correctly as above.
Hyptothesis: there is some bug in FFox 1.0 which makes it fail to load the
page externally requested if FFox is not already running.
Workaround: Start FFox manually before attempting to open pages from Notetab
or *expect* the first failure and just redo the Open from Notetab.
Question: Anyone else seeing similar behavior and/or able to open a page in
a "non-browsers" window from Notetab even if FFox 1.0 is *not* already
