Does ToolBook support Firefox?

QUESTION

Is ToolBook web published content (DHTML) compatible with Firefox?


ANSWER

Yes. Unfortunately Firefox has made changes to its more current releases, which cause the following problem.

Summary:

As of Firefox (68.0.1) released in 2019, Firefox will not be able to load ToolBook's DHTML content unless that content is on a Web Server. If you use Firefox and attempt to load the content from a local location (from your hard drive or CD-ROM, for example) you will be presented with a:


P# does not exist and could not be loaded


error message and the content will refuse to load. This appears to be tied to security improvements within Firefox restricting local file access.


The only workaround known, is to use an older version of Firefox, or access your ToolBook content from a web server.
