    If you want to use mozilla, don't use "raise". Mozilla will fail using it.

    I am confused about where I set this. I am using KDE, and I know where to pick the browser I want to open with html docs, but like I said, when I click on a link from say KMail, it opens, but only goes to my home page. thanks.

    Re:KMail and Netscape or Mozilla

    I have come back to this, as I still havent gotten it to work. When I click on a link in Kmail or elsewhere, in KDE, Netscape opens, but just to the home page, not the link I clicked on. I have tried many different options in the KDE control center for html file associations, based on the suggestions I got. When I set it to Opera, it works correctly. Could it be a setting in Netscape itself? There are 3 options there for when it opens, home page, last viewed page, or blank page. Playing with those, I still had no luck. I appreciate your help!

    it probally is a netscape thing, i seem to recall it uses a different variable to open a page than any other browser.
    try looking on google for the syntax to use, it should be somewhere

    Re:KMail and Netscape or Mozilla

    I would like to revisit this as I never solved it and just started looking at it again. I want to make mozilla my default url/html handler. I use Suse 8.0 and KDE. I have tried many different syntaxes in KDE Control Center inclunding the suggestions in this post. I have searched in Google and in Mozilla. Mozilla tells you how to do it with Gnome, but not KDE. If anyone uses KDE and mozilla as the default, please let me know the proper sequence. Thanks.
