Links open in different browsers

Jun 18, 2012 at 5:34 AM

On the system I'm trying this out on, Firefox is my default browser.

In Mishra Reader, clicking on the post title in the reading pane opens up the associated webpage in my default browser (FF). However, clicking on a link within the body of a post always opens it in Internet Explorer even though it's not the default browser.

Is it because the IE engine is used to render the body of a feed post? - if so that could explain why clicking on a link would open it in the same browser vs the system default.

Hi Kilkenny,

Yes, the main reason is that IE is being used to render the post. There's a backlog item to intercept its new-window links so that the default browser can be used instead, but it hasn't been done yet.
