The first application listed is "mozilla". This application is set up
to execute the command "/usr/local/bin/mozilla -remote
openURL(%u,new-tab)". The "Embedding" setting is set to "Show file in

If I open an HTML file in konqueror then it launches mozilla and
displays it. If I copy the same file onto my desktop then the same
thing hapens (no konqueror window is opened). If I click on a link in
kzephyr (which calls kapp->invokeBrowser(link), exactly as kmail does)
then a konqeror window opens, which remains empty as it immediately
Hmmm. [Munging through header files.] In the kapplication.h header
file the comments indicate that the invokeBrowser() interface is
obsolete, and KRun() should be used instead. Does anyone have a newer
version of the kmail source and can see if this has been fixed? (I am
using and looking at 3.1.1.)
If I change kzephyr to use KRun() instead it works just fine.
