Can an alternate text editor be configured as default to view page source in Firefox 0.8? Thanks.

Yes, I just found this one, haven't tested it yet,
it's the mozex extension [mozex.mozdev.org]

That lets you select all relevant programs, telnet, ftp, source viewer etc, not a great product, no way to browse for your path, you have to write the path in to your software, but I assume it will work.

<added>, no read the faqs, it doesn't change the default viewer, just adds a menu itemt that lets you select your source editor by right clicking or something, not what you're looking for, sorry.

Thanks Isitreal, no it doesn't change the default, however it may be a good second choice. I may end up swaping the file names the way I did in IE.
