Hello,

The integrated browser uses Internet Explorer and only Internet Explorer. When you view the document with the external viewer (View->View with External Viewer), that should open your page in Firefox if you have Firefox set as your default web browser (assuming you are editing an HTML page with an HTM or HTML extension and Firefox is set as the default program to open that file type).

Hope this helps!

Hello,

The address looks right. It is the path to a file at c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\test.html. I'm not sure why it is not displaying. I'd have to see the source and then perhaps I could have a better answer for you. The page may not be designed to display properly using a direct path. If you'd like to send me the source, then please email it to support@htmlvalidator.com. I'll take a look and see if I can figure out why it doesn't display anything.
