began using 'NoteTab' & 'View In Browser' I've used Netscape, up to the
most recent version of Mozilla -Mozilla.org stopped updating Mozilla and
concentrated the effort on Seamonkey. I've also used FireFox and on a
limited basis, used several IE versions.
Seamonkey currently appears to be Mozilla's predecessor, offspring if
you like, Seamonkey is now my primary browser. I added Opera, since it
became a free downloaded, for familiarization.
I recall a minor problem with Opera, similar to -"Windows cannot find
Opera.exe"-, which, if I recall correctly, was a path problem, I believe
because I allowed Windows/Opera default to be the initial install
location. I moved it, it works perfectly now.
I haven't had a problem, other than the path problem mentioned, with any
of these browsers and 'View In Browser' in NoteTab, that is, except with
I also used 'QuickLaunch' in the beginning but do not, and, have not,
used it for a very long time and Mozilla, Seamonkey, Opera and IE always
display the correct page, correctly, without being loaded into memory
I was never able to get FireFox to, dependably, display a page
correctly. I don't know what the problem is, I don't think it's a
NoteTab problem, I think it's strictly a FireFox problem.
I've shared parts of my 'browsers.dat' file and would do so again. As
someone else said this has been discussed before on these lists and most
of the information is on Yahoo and in the archives. My browsers.dat may
not be helpful to others but it is how I always start my different
browsers from within NoteTab.
