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
(embedded) browser.
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
