linux, firefox, kmail, mozilla
Question about Kmail versions 1.55-1.61 and Firefox 0.8
Running Knoppix 3.3 - debian testing/unstable
Installed Mozilla Firefox 0.8 in homedirectory
I found a number of startup scripts that check if firefox is running and run it with the -remote command. But the one for Mozilla 1.6,
installed in /usr/bin/mozilla, works for Firefox just as well,
if you change some variables:
Anyway, the mozilla script now
runs Firefox instead of Mozilla 1.6.
This script works great from the desktop shortcut,
from konqueror Filemanagement (pops up the browser
for HTML messages)... all places but Kmail
When I click links from Kmail, I get this error message:
"The file /home/ezust/.kde/share/apps/kgmexec/tmp/2
2119.0.hts.exe cannot be found. please check the location and try again."
And then after I click OK, it runs the browser but the browser
opens to an empty page. And I check, the file is indeed gone.
Unlike other programs which seem to run the browser script directly, Kmail loads data from the URL and caches it locally, removing images and other things. When I use with mozilla 1.6, it does display pages,
minus images and sometimes broken links. But at least it
displays a version of the page
But it seems as if Kmail deletes the cached page before Firefox
has a chance to see it. Bug in Kmail?
Is there a way of switching off this caching behavior on Kmail
and just opening the browser directly?
Is there a proper startup-script for firefox that works well with kmail?
