HI

I find it very annoying Berlin insist on opening websites in IE, instead of the
browser I use and already have open.

How can I make Berlin behave properly and use my choise of browser ??

Thanks in advance

What websites are you opening? From where? Within the IDE itself? Since
the IDE uses embedded IE browser windows, it makes sense that any hyperlinks
clicked on would also open in IE.

Youtube tutorial videos.

Yes it is from within the IDE, but that could easily be fixed, if they wanted to respect
the users choise of browser.

So, I guess there is no setting to chose external browser. :-(

Not easily, since the embedded browser is the one opening the links, so
they would have to hook into the embedded browser and block its attempts
to open new browser windows, redirecting the URLs to ShellExecute/Ex() instead.
It can certainly be done, but will it be done? Only they can answer that.
File a feature request in Quality Portal.

No.
