Aha, strange behaviour. Makes it more convenient to use rebol/view as external viewer for .r scripts instead, then the browser will remain on page A. I dont see the point in plugin unless it actually _plugs_ the application into the browser, ie the browser window, and thereby act as browser content.

Yes, sorry, this was mailed after struggling with it for half an hour or so. The linux version that is.

What's to document? I have nothing further to contribute than the above anyways, I have no idea what script rebol runs first time it is run, if I did I would look into it and find the problem myself. The thing about not using RAM: on amiga should be obvious, the problem with installing on linux doesnt make sense to me.. the install script puts the binary inside the dir then opens a requester and tells me that it couldnt do it, even though it just did. feedback works now? </duck> OK, I assume I could use feedback on the amiga, as it probably works there :) -- kolla
