Not sure this is a bug or "enhancement" :cheers: but even though I use firefox, the links to new news postings in the right hand side of winbuilders download screen insist on firing up IE - and they don't know how to create a new tab - they insist on creating a new window for each click...

Not serious, but just a pain to deal with...

This is expected.

wb is using an embedded IE frame and this frame insists on only trusting IE to bring up links instead of executing whatever application is defined to open .html files.

Thanks for awesome feature are due to MS.

Not much that can be done about it and I'm also an FF user.. :cheers:

Hi sbaeder,

I am an opera user, but I also use maxthon as a IE replacement (also there are others available) :( and when i click the links on wb maxthon opens :cheers:
Well we cant use opera or ff on some cases but at least IE replacements starts faster.
Dont expect a miracle, webpage load time the same, these replacements uses IE files with better startup time and some other enhancements..
