    Default Can I use my choice of Browser?

    Hi all,

    I have searched for the answer to this, but was unable to find any mention. Can I use my own browser (Firefox) with Zimbra Desktop? When I select a link in an email, I get the Zimbra browser, which I don't want. Thanks!

    The Zimbra Desktop should use your default application for handling URL's when clicking on a link in an email.

    What is the Zimbra browser?

    It should always open a link in default browser. Which platform is this?

    My about box says "Yahoo Zimbra Desktop 1.0 (build 1513)". I'm running on Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid) AMD64. Thanks!

    Have you set a browser (e.g. Firefox) as your default browser yet?

    Yes, Firefox set as default browser in System|Preferences|Preferred Applications

    If FF is in the middle of updating (or has downloaded an update and ready to apply), you may see ZD is opening in its own window for links clicked.

    Nope, no updates. ZD has never opened links in FF... :-(

    another thing you can try is to set default browser as something else; then set it back to firefox; restart zd afterward.

    No luck on either front. I checked Firefox's Preferences and Check Now says that Firefox is the default.

    I then went to the System Preferences and changed the default browser to Konqueror. I restarted ZD, then click on a link in an email message. I still got the Zimbra browser. I then set system preferences back to Firefox, killed ZD and tried again. Still the Zimbra browser... :-(
