Hi could someone help me out, when I highlight a word (eg String) and choose dynamic help, then choose "Javadoc for 'java.lang.String'" nothing happens, I get a slow green progress bar at the bottom of the screen that slowly loads nothing.

After clicking around, I don't think any of the help links work Sad

Doesn't anyone have any idea why this is happening?

Does anyone know a better place to get help with this?

Thanks

Either the attached Javadoc is not correct, or the browser can't be
found/opened.

The easiest way to set up a JRE, is to download the Java [6] SDK, which
also contains the source and then add it via Java > Installed JREs
preference page. After that, verify that your project uses the newly
installed JRE (see project's 'Java Build Path' properties).

If you only want to add the downloaded Javadoc, you select the 'rt.jar'
in the Package Explorer and open its properties. There you can set the
source and Javadoc attachments.

I actually don't think javadoc is the problem, I think Eclipse is set to go online for the docs so It's likely the browser.

So if the browser can't be found or opened how might i determine the exact nature of the problem and fix it?
