Clicking on HTTP links in Spark yields nothing on Linux and Windows.
I should refine that. If I happen to have Netscape installed on my Linux box, the link will work. But, since this is 2007, I have only Firefox installed on my Linux box, so I created a symlink in my $PATH called “netscape” that simply points to the Linux Firefox start script.
On Windows I have no idea what a good workaround would be, because it might involved using “dir” and forward-slashes for arguments and other DOSsy things that scare me. Perhaps Spark is looking for Netscape there, too. I haven’t seen Netscape on a Windows box since they stopped making websites that were thirty screens long, chock full of animated GIFs and blinking text, and played MIDI files as they loaded.
