Question Quanta and Mozilla Firebird?


My problem is that none of the default browsers that quanta has are installed in my system (Nor do I like Netscape, Konqueror etc.). I'd really like it to use Mozilla Firebird or Mozilla 1.5 as the default preview browser but I can't find any way of setting this. Does anyone know how to do this?

Hi.

You could make a link to MozillaFirebird (the shell script that runs firebird) in /usr/bin or wherever and call the link "netscape". Nescape takes arguments in exactly the same way as Firebird does, so Quanta should launch Firebird perfectly.

(Incidentally, this is how I get Evolution to launch Firebird when you click a link in an e-mail).
