I'm sure this has been posted before but I'm looking for information on how to open hyperlinks that the user clicks in a Browser Widget in the Default OS Browser. Basically I have a low level email viewer that is running a Browser widget but everytime I click a link, it navigates to that page and away from the email. I would much rather it open up (for my case) a new firefox window and navigate to the link there.

Hi,

- add a LocationListener to the Browser, implement its "changing" method
- when this method is invoked:
- event.doit = false; // cancel the navigation in the Browser
- Program.launch(event.location); // launch an external browser on the
url
