HTML files are opened in Microsoft Internet Explorer instead of the configured browser

Version 1

    Problem

    Consider the following scenario:
    • The HTML file type is configured with an open command on Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
    • No browsers are opened in the user session.
    • In the same session a HTML file is opened.
    In this scenario the file is opened in Microsoft Internet Explorer instead of the configured browser.

     

    Cause

    If no browsers are opened then the opennew command is used for the file type.

     

    Solution

    Add a file type for HTML with the opennew command as well on Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
