I've updated a collect of patches that help improve the
initial load and reloading of WebHelp, and correcti the display and
behavior of the toolbar and minibar (also called the navigation
bar). Mostly they help Firefox and Netscape. They also solve one or
two problems in Internet Explorer.
Except for the last patch below, I previously posted these in
the forum, and Peter Grainge picked up several for his excellent RH
troubleshooting site. I'm not repeating the earlier ones here, but
will be happy to send a summary Word doc to anyone who sends me a
Adobe did make some housekeeping code changes in RH 6, but
(as of the trial version) none of those suggested here except one
for whtbar.js, as explained in the summary.
The usual disclaimer: It works for me but I can't guarantee
your results. Back up everything. Experiment on a small project or
a minimized copy of the working project. I haven't tested these in
RH 6, but a quick look at files in the trial version didn't find
any likely problems. If you test them in RH 6, please report back
either here or in a private message.
