Description xucaen 2016-05-04 18:57:04 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 8.1 (Build 201510222201)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.8.0_60
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.60-b23

Reproducibility: Happens every time

  * I select my index.html file
  * Right click
  * select the Run File option

  nothing happens; run file options is grayed out/disabled.  Toolbar is also grayed out.

  I expected to be able to run my index.html file in a browser. It's been working fine all week, today I open up netb eans and I am not able to "run" any html files.

I made a video which shows how to recreate the video. Apparently, having a bower.json file present in the project folder causes netbeans to disable all of its web dev icons and the run file feature. You can see the video here:

Seems to me that this issue will be fixed once issue #256585 is fixed. You can easily verify it by renaming package/bower.json to e.g. package2/bower2.json and restart the IDE.

Thanks for reporting.
