Need help with Opera, Mozilla.


Well, I downloaded Opera and installed it. I like it, except I told it to hide some menu bars, and I've yet to ever see them again. If anyone knows how to undo this, I'd be very happy about it.

Also, before I did what I had mentioned, I planned to make opera my web browser.
So in RH9, I clicked on the Globe & Mouse icon and thought I changed it to run opera. Nope. Also, I did something under the advanced tab for Mozilla/Web Client Icon. It has 4 boxes in a row. I accidently hit revert and it cleared them for me. Since then, I've noticed Mozilla won't open one link until I click on another. It also doesn't open up with my homepage showing, it's blank instead. In the preferences, it is set to load with my homepage up. I've checked and made sure of this.

If anyone can help me out with these two minor, stupid problems, I'd really appreciate it..

Thanks in advance

well in opera, most of the menubars can be toggled on and off in View. if you turned off your File menubar, you can get that back by pressing ctrl-f11. i don't know how rh 9 does it, but usually in rh 7.3 in kde 3.X you edit your file associations to open with opera. basically, find your file associations branch in kcontrol and open up the text branch. edit all the html, shtml, and other web type documents to open with opera by adding (if opera not listed in applications to open with), and moving the opera listing to the top of the list. then click the embedding tab and and choose open in seperate viewer.

Screenshot #1
Screenshot #2

now, before you do this though (depending on if opera is listed in the applications to open with), opera says for kde you need to alter the opera command. do this in kde's menu editor by right clicking the kstart button and choosing menu editor. find opera and change the command to opera %u
this is for like when you click a link in an email, kde will pass the url directly to opera instead of looking through kde's cache for the page. in gnome i think you change the command to opera %s

Screenshot #3

after doing this you can go ahead with the first step of adding opera to your lists of applications to open with since clicking the Add button there will bring up a pop with a tree view of your kmenu.

don't know about your moz problem though.

edit: i also don't know what the steps are for making a default browser in gnome since i don't use gnome. you'll have to google or wait for that if you use gnome.

thanks for the opera help.

I'm not gonna worry about setting up opera as primary browser and so on.

I'll wait till someone can help me with mozilla. If not, I'll google about how to get it set up right like I want it to be.

cool. but i believe everything i told you for opera will apply to any browser you wish to make your default. although i could be wrong since the only browsers i've ever really made for my default was opera ( a long time ago) and konqueror now (which doesn't need that command change thingy). g'luck on your travails.
