Description Vladimir Riha 2012-07-31 11:50:10 UTC
I'm on Ubuntu and OS default browser is set to Chrome.

- start IDE with clean user dir (so in Tools|Options the Web Browser is set to Defualt System Browser)
- create a new javascript project
- open View|LiveHTML window
- type address and start analysis

=> new tab in Chrome is opened (with the plugin toolbar) but no events are caught in IDE => LiveHTML shows nothing and browser seems like working.

This is extremely confusing and has to be somehow handled, at least some warning msg that I have to set Chrome explicitly as default. Currently user have no idea what's going on
