Preview in browser not working, please help

Jun 27, 2011 9:12 AM

I am using Creative Suite 5, running on OS 10.6.3, Mac book pro intel 2 core duo.


Everything else works, but in dremweaver I can't preview in browser what I'm working on!

Preview in Firefox won't do a thing, and in safari I get a message saying Unable to launch...


I already deleted the browsers on the list and re-added them. I uninstalled creative studio and installed it again, and the problem persists.


This way I can't work at all with dreamweaver, I can't test my site.

Extremely frustrating, I have spent hours and hours trying to solve the problem and can't understand what could be causing it.


Does it have something to do with my internet connection??


Please help!

    Is the 'Unable to launch' a system or dreamweaver message?


    If from dreamweaver, then you path to the browser is probably incorrect. Also what type of page and content are you trying to view?

    Can you post a screenshot of the error message, please?

    Please tell me what you mean by "same name as my hard drive" above. I'm getting the same error message and not able to correct problem as you did.

    much appreciated.

    No sooner asked than solved!

    Needed to check "Preview Using Temporary File" in DW Preferences.
