    I can't seem to find where I can change the default browser for webview, any pointers on this would be much appreciated. Would like Firefox as default if possible.

    Thanks in advance for any input - Zaphodz

    Hi Zaphodz,

    Fetch uses the browser you've set as your default Mac OS browser for WebView.

    So if Firefox is your default Mac OS browser, Fetch should use Firefox. To set Firefox as your default Mac OS X browser (these instructions are for Firefox 2):

    * Open Firefox.
    * Choose Preferences.
    * Click the Main icon.
    * Next to the "Always check to see if Firefox is the default browser on startup" checkbox near the bottom of the window, click the "Check Now" button, and Firefox will offer to set itself as the default browser.

    Note that if you set Firefox as your default browser, any time you open a webpage from another program, Firefox will open instead of Safari.

    There is no way to set Fetch''s WebView to use a browser different from your Mac OS X browser.

    If you have Firefox set as your default browser and Fetch is not using it, let us know and we can investigate.

    Please let us know if you have further questions Thanks,
