Wikipedia Action URL

Is there any way to customize the URL that the Wikipedia action uses?

Re: Browser won't open links

OK, I followed the ritual again (change default browser in Safari, quit Safari) and now all is well :)

Re: Browser won't open links

Hmph, shortcuts on the desktop and links from Mail don't work either. I guess it's back to Safari for now.

Browser won't open links

I just switched my default browser from Safari to Firefox and now when I select a bookmark or web search in LaunchBar, Firefox activates but otherwise nothing, the link won't open. I have tried quitting and relaunching both Firefox and LaunchBar, but without luck.

OS X 10.5.8
LaunchBar 5.0 RC 3

Hm. Weirdly, I did not know that ⌘Y is a shortcut for Quicklook in Finder. I've only ever used the space bar :)

Anyway, like someone else said, I guess I'll get used to the new shortcut. (Launching Quicklook by mistake a few more times will do that.)

Is there any way to get that file link to work in Firefox? Yeah, the Apple help is sooooo broken in Leopard. It's slow as mud, the links don't give any feedback so I click on them over and over without knowing if something is going to happen, and of course the on-top-of-all-other-windows thing. I'm ...

Did you quit Firefox first? It took me a couple tries, but it did work when I quit Firefox, deleted my existing Firefox index entry, added it again, and hit Refresh.

I've been using LB for a couple years now and I KNOW I barely scratch the surface. But... I'm sold on just the web search templates. I guess a pretty basic feature, but what a timesaver. All my most common searches are down to one letter, like "W" for Wikipedia and "A" for AllMus...

I've run LaunchBar without the Dock icon without any issues for a couple years. With the new beta I'm leaving it in the Dock just to see if there's anything I miss by removing it, and so far I don't see any reason not to remove it again especially now that the ability to remove it is built in. As fo...

Same here - I thought I was going nuts. Well Firefox is at RC1 now - hopefully LaunchBar support will come soon.

I am curious to know why the configuration is now an application and not a preference pane. I *much* preferred the preference pane. One reason is that I already have numerous applications in the 'Applications' folder and this seems like it doesn't belong. Another problem is the name is rather long (...

Keyboard shortcut conflict

The keyboard shortcut to drop down the context menu, Control-Right Arrow, conflicts with the Spaces shortcut to move to the next Space. I could reprogram the Spaces shortcut but that is not a viable option because the only other options are Option-Right Arrow and Command-Right Arrow which conflict w...

LaunchBar and Spotlight serve 2 different functions (at least, for me). I use LaunchBar to quickly launch stuff, perform web searches, navigate thru folders etc. I use Spotlight to search for stuff. Spotlight's advantage is that it can search the contents of files. It indexes your entire drive (exce...
