    Smile Internet Explorer vs Firefox

    I have been using Firefox as my default browser and noticed a peculiarity w/ Revit. When trying to access the Revit web library, I can get to the detail I want but get a "file not found" error when trying to download it. The library seems to work fine when using IE. Is there a way to have Revit default to Internet explorer rather than Firefox when accessing the web library? Or is there a work around with Firefox?

    Thanks

    I'm guessing, but could it be a lack of a java runtime library install that is keep Firefox from executing the download? I also noted that prob, but I think I didn't have the prob when I had JRE installed on my last box. Anyway, if you figue it out, please post cause I really like Firefox.

    Good luck.

    I think I found a solution that works until I fiddle with it a while longer.
    I set IE ast the default browser but keep using Firefox as my browser of choice. Not real elegant but it works.

    I just started using Firefox as by browser. Love it. I loaded it because I wanted to check a web site design I'm doing with the Mozilla engine. There are a few features I've come to like in IE that aren't supported in Firefox, but on the whole I like Firefox better.

    I know this has nothing to do with the issue at hand, but I thought I'd chime in just the same.

    Or is there a work around with Firefox?
    I think it relates to MS specific javascript extensions. So it won't work with Firefox unless Autodesk change the script.

    I know this is a little late but...

    Another option is installing the ieView extension. This will allow you to right click in a page and open IE with that page.

    Thanks gpope!

    I really don't like using IE, and this plug helps allot for sites that lock out every other
    competitor in the browser market.

    Nice One!

    Thanks
