      Greetings,
      I was not sure where to post this, but here goes.

      I recently changed my Main Browser in NoteTab Pro Internet Options to
      FireFox 1.0.7 from IE 6.

      When I click the "View in Browser" button FF launches.
      Now for the weird part: When FF launches it opens two Tabs. One is blank
      and the other one *always* opens to this site: http://www.census.gov/. It
      does not generate a preview of the NoteTab document

      This *only* happens when FF is not running prior to selecting "View in
      Browser".
      When FF is already running NT and FF behave normally.

      I have reinstalled FF and run Spybot and Microsoft AntiSpyware and still
      the problem persists.

      Any idea what might be going on?

      Thanks,
      -Mike

        If you look back through the groups you will see that this is a long
        standing issue. There have been many theories but no resolution. Other
        applications seem to be able to open Firefox gracefully but Notetab has
        a fundamental problem. Note that if Firefox is already open when you
        "View in Browser" it will work as expected.

          It might have to do with FireFox' keyword feature
          <http://www.mozilla.org/docs/end-user/internet-keywords.htm>

          It sends a word that you enter in the address bar to Google's "I'm
          feeling lucky"-service.
          Path and filenames are often "chopped" when submitted to other programs,
          especially when they contain spaces, and then interpreted as 2 values
          (this could cause the 2 tabs, too).

          Does your \path and\filename contain a string that would bring up
          census.gov in Google?

          HTH,
          Rudi

                I did a bit of experimenting with this issue...

                The Mozilla browser (Firefox's "father") exhibits the same behavior...
                provided that you are NOT using the "QuickLaunch" feature (which keeps a
                part of the browser "pre-loaded" in memory).

                Also, I noticed a related behavior using Opera: if Opera is closed, I
                get an odd message saying that "Windows cannot find Opera.exe" (I
                double-checked: the right path is set up in browsers.dat), but then
                goes on to open Opera... and then, depending on the file name, Opera
                cannot find it (apparently it gets truncated if it contains a comma,
                for instance). If Opera is already opened, however, it works fine.

                There is a filed bug with Mozilla about this problem, or one very
                similar to it (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=263701) but
                after finding the thing about Opera, I'm beginning to think there might
                be also a bug in the way Notetab forms the command-line.

                  Mike,

                  As mentioned by the others, this is a problem. What is more interesting,
                  some users do not have this problem.

                  I do have this issue, so I built a clip that will open Firefox before
                  sending it a file to view. It also seems to help if the file is saved
                  and not in an unsaved state requiring a temporary file.

                  I always get a website that I cannot figure out, but it is not census.gov.

                  I think some users found some Firefox extensions to help minimize or
                  eliminate this issue, but again, not for me.

                    What worked for me was setting Firefox as my default Browser for the
                    computer, and assigning the file types to it by extension. (you have to
                    do it by it's DOS name.)

                    Then Firefox was called to execute any HTML family file. I then set
                    MSIE 6.0 as the second HTML default in Notetab ( Browser 2).

                    It worked right up until the time I dis-installed Firefox (I wanted an
                    integrated mail proxy).

                    I tried the same process with Mozilla Suite, but had no success.

                    I went back to Netscape 4.73 as my default, and still like the mail
                    proxy that is part of it.

                    (Now if I could find a way to make my own integrated Genealogy program,
                    built around a browser, which displays its "notes" section as HTML
                    pages, I would be REALLY happy) Sadly I am not a programmer.

                      This 'View In Browser' info is not correct in my experience. Since I
                      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
                      FireFox.

                      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
                      beforehand.

                      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.

                        To be clear I must point out that I used the incorrect term above,
                        should have read, 'Mozilla's successor'. Another possible reason for
                        lack of current support in Mozilla is they may be waiting for the newest
                        version of Gecko, the browser engine.

                          I wrote a Clip to make Firefox behave like it should:

                          • If Firefox already shows the file

                          in your browser, edit line 20.
                          • On slower machines you might have to
                          adjust delays on lines 8 and 10.
                          • On line 13 insert your path to firefox.exe.

                          If your Firefox installation contains extensions related
                          to tabbed browsing, you might have to edit some details.

                              The function "gettitle" is called from the
                              main clip: %tit%=^$gettitle(^##)$.

                              It reads the title tag of the given document.

                              Later in the main clip %tit% is used to check
                              if the document is already open in a firefox tab.

                              If the document is not found in 10 tabs it will
                              be opened in a new tab.

                              The code of "getttitle" could also be noted
                              directly in the main clip.

                              The advantage of functions is, that you can
                              call them from every clip (in the same library),
                              so you don't have to write often used routines again and again.

                              On Functions see also NoteTab's clip help
                              under "Custom Functions".

                                in other words, what are the specific steps I need to do to make the clip
                                work, starting from step 1 . . .
                                Do I launch the clip in a separate tab? then open the htm file etc etc etc.

                                PS can you resend the clip here if possible?


                                many Thanks

                                The function "gettitle" is called from the
                                main clip: %tit%=^$gettitle(^##)$.

                                It reads the title tag of the given document.

                                Later in the main clip %tit% is used to check
                                if the document is already open in a firefox tab.

                                If the document is not found in 10 tabs it will
                                be opened in a new tab.

                                The code of "getttitle" could also be noted
                                directly in the main clip.

                                The advantage of functions is, that you can
                                call them from every clip (in the same library),
                                so you don't have to write often used routines again and again.

                                On Functions see also NoteTab's clip help
                                under "Custom Functions".

                                  I hope the following will help yo to install and use
                                  the clips.

                                  Regards,

                                  Here we go:

                                  Step 1:
                                  Open Notetab.
                                  If you cannot see the Clipbook, open it by pressing F4

                                  To test an unknown clip, you might want to create
                                  a new library which you can simply delete if results
                                  are not as expected:
                                  Right click in the title field of the clipbook and
                                  select "new". Choose a name for the new library and
                                  click o.k.

                                  Now select the clip(s) from the line
                                  H="SOLOFOX"
                                  to the line
                                  ^!result ^$strupper(^%fftxt2%)$
                                  and copy them to the clipboard.

                                  On the new library you then right click
                                  and select "Add from Clibboard"

                                  Now you should see both clips in your clipbook.
                                  The title of "GETTITLE" is grayed out: This function
                                  is not intendet to be launched by clicking on it but
                                  is called from "SOLOFOX".


                                  Step 2
                                  Right click on SOLOFOX and choose "Edit Clip"
                                  Make shure, that the line between ";LONG LINE:" and ";END OF LONG LINE"
                                  which begins with "^!set %url%..." is just one long line.

                                  On line 16 replace the string "FullPath\firefox.exe"
                                  with the real path to firefox.exe on your machine.
                                  On Windows this might be something like
                                  C:\program files\mozilla firefox\firefox.exe

                                  Note: do not remove the quotes.

                                  Now save (ctrl+S or File/Save) and close the clip tab.

                                  The clip should now be ready to run.


                                  Step 3
                                  Open a html document in NoteTab Pro
                                  (The clip should work in NT Light too, but
                                  I did'nt test it)

                                  Click (or doubleclick - this depends on your settings)
                                  SOLOFOX

                                  The clip opens the current html document in Firefox.
                                  • If Firefox already shows the file
                                  it will be reloaded in the same tab.
                                  • If you use to have more than 10 open tabs
                                  in your browser, edit line 23.
                                  • On slower machines you might have to
                                  adjust delays on lines 13 and 20.


                                  Tested on Windows XP with Firefox 1.0.7
                                  Doesn't work with files without a <title>Title</title>

                                  If your Firefox installation contains extensions related
                                  to tabbed browsing, you might have to edit some details.
