Yes, this is how it's supposed to work.

I dont grasp any of this.. You go to a page A that has a link to a rebol script B, you click the script B and the browser uses the plugin to display the running view application inside the browser. You hit back and you're back to page A. What's problem? Are you confusing "back" with "up"? Anyone tried with Opera btw? It supports netscape plugins so there should be no problem. Sidenote... how the heck to I get passed the "Failed to create binary file /home/kolla/.rebol/rebol" problem when running view for the fist time? I find myself unable to install rebol/view on linux these days.. someone fix it please. Also, the amiga installation is kida lame, it assumes all files are located in RAM: when installing, what smart idea is that? Please, be smart and use PROGDIR:! -- kolla
