Icechat 7.70 problem in win7 x64 with urls
« on: January 12, 2011, 05:51:05 AM »
I've been having a rather annoying problem with my IceChat, which is that I cant open any url links from my channel window. From the colour of the top bar of the program I can see that Icechat is deselected from the active program, but no tab is opened in my browser.

I am using Windows 7 Professional x64, Icechat build 7.70 and the Firefox browser, latest version.

Open IceChat Settings, under Main, and at the bottom select your default browser from the drop down list, and see if that helps at all.

okay, it was already on firefox, but I witched it to EI and back just to be sure, and it works perfectly now. I still think it's odd, but thanks for the tip, it solved the problem   :-D

Thats why that option was added, to fix the issue.
