Choosing a webbrowser in Blue Griffon

Posted

I construct a webpage in BlueGriffon (webpage-maker). Then I want to see the result in my webbrowser Firefox (version 17.0.1 under OS Linux Kubuntu version 12.10). A box opens, I have to choose a webbrowser. My question: Where on my harddisk can I find the Firefox executable (So that I can choose that one)??!

If you are able to start Firefox then you should have a desktop shortcut and the properties of that shortcut should show the path to the Firefox application.
If you have a Firefox version from your distribution (i.e. you didn't install Firefox from the Mozilla site) then you should also be able to see where the program is installed via your software management.
