Description Stanislav Aubrecht 2009-08-07 11:34:56 UTC
allow URLDisplayer to show URLs in an external browser even if the preferred browser in IDE options is an internal

this is needed to show html pages when a modal dialog is showing and to redirect some links clicked in internal browser
to the external one
