      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:


          Opens 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 20.
          • On slower machines you might have to
          adjust delays on lines 8 and 10.
          • On line 13 insert your path to firefox.exe.
          Don't forget the quotes.
          • Requires Function »GETTITLE« (see below).

          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.

              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,
                  Melchior


                  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.
