Using Mozilla Composer as default html editor
...need some help here

 4:51 pm on Mar 20, 2003 (gmt 0)

As I can't get on with Quanta, Bluefish etc, I am trying to make more use of Mozilla Composer for my Linux html and WYSIWYG editing.

It has a reasonable css editor in "Cacades" (free extension), and is pretty cool for 'on the fly' editing of web sites.

I have a problem though.

I want Mozilla Compsoer to be my default editor - I want to be able to call on it from other applications, my file manager, desktop, whatever.....

The trouble is, Mozilla is usually already open as my browser and instead of opening a Compser window in the running instance of Mozilla, it just tries to start a new instance, prompting the 'select user profile' box'

Anyone know how to call Mozilla Composer and have it use the running instance of Mozilla?

One thing I can think of is having Composer be the default app. Now Composer will start first but if you don't want to use it at that time, you can start the browser from Composer then close Composer. You can change which is the default app buy going to preferences and clicking on the word appearance.

If I remember right, when using Mozilla with Windows a short cut to Composer was added to the start menu. If that's true, there should be a way to do the same with Linux.
