User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021016
Build Identifier: Mozilla 1.2b windows NT from website

QA C (a code checking program) from
http://www.programmingresearch.com/noflash_frameset.htm cannot produces output
in html-format. The application that is to open the html-file can be chosen via
browsing. ie and netscape 4.7x works fine, but mozilla fails. I think the
problem is on the dde-level

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
I am pretty sure few has this tool from
http://www.programmingresearch.com/noflash_frameset.htm but:
1.Analyse file with qa c
2.choose mozilla as application to open html output with
3.dubble click the file
4.Mozilla opens but no file is.

Actual Results:  
Mozilla opens but no file is open in it. I can only see my default home page

Some loggs from ddespy. First working with netscape, then not working with
mozilla 1.2b:

I am using mozilla 1.2 for windows at work, but reporting from home. That is why
it looks funny with the user-agent and the build identifier.

I think the problem is that mozilla and netscape is somewhat incompatible on the
dde level but I don't understand much of that.stuff.
