When I use Command-F12, it launches a preview in Firefox. I suspect the difference is in how your system is set to open HTML files. Try finding an HTML file on your system and changing the default program (make sure to hit Apply To All). If you aren't sure how to do that, I could tell you, but I'm not sure if you're on Windows or Snow Leopard. After you've changed the default program, try using Command-F12 and see what happens.
Yeah, I figured that would probably be the answer. It wasn't that way before I upgraded to CS5. I didn't try it because I really didn't want to find out they did something that dumb. I open more HTML files in DreamWeaver than in a browser, so I've got the system set up to open them in DW. Fllash-CS4 knew how to tell the difference, and that's what I finished out the day on.
They need to correct that. In DW you can go so far as to specify the particular browser you want to preview in by default. They should either do that with Flash or at least give the Publish Preview > Flash option a key command.
Thanks for that feedback.
Agreed. Sometimes I wonder if they consult any product users before they make changes and "upgrades."
