View Full Version : Can't preview in Firefox

02-12-2010, 05:23 PM
Wondering if anyone has had this problem:

Using CS4 on a MAC 10.6.2 - preview in browser works fine in Safari but Firefox opens but not the desired page, it opens at it's default home page!

Hi, I have the same issue. Its something to do with the preview function because if I drag the file to the firefox icon it opens no problem

I can't reproduce the issue with FF 3.6, DWCS4 and Mac OS 10.6.2 although if FF isn't open when I preview I do get my home page and the preview in 2 separate windows.

Have you tried Dreamweaver Preferences>Preview in Browser and deleting and the reselecting FF?

The same thing just happened to me. It was working fine and all out of the sudden it stopped (all other browser works OK)

I thought it was maybe due to erroneous code but even attempting to show Dreamweaver Support Center just brings Firefox to the foreground and then ... NOTHING!

Restarting my mac did not help either...

If you have Firefox 3.6, downgrade to a version of 3.5 (I think 3.5.9 is the latest).

How do you explain that it just suddenly stopped working?

I mean I was using the feature while working on my website and from one call (to preview) to the next it stopped working. I did not upgrade Firefox (v.3.6.3) in the meantime...

I can't explain it. I just know it happened like that to me as well.:confused:
