Where does Putty come in?

Presumably the address you are giving has javascript on the page you are visiting and apparently htmlview doesn't. Do any sites work?

Actually, htmlview is just a simple script to launch your "preferred" or "default" browser. In your case, it's probably
launching a browser that is unaware of JavaScript.

Are you using GNOME or KDE? Do you have any browsers (firefox, mozilla, konqueror,...) installed?
Can you tell which browser gets launched by htmlview (you can "echo" all the "exec" commands in the script to find out).
