Just installed 1.07.07 although this may have been an issue before this version. I searched through the forum and couldn't find a thread on this issue.
I have a URL shortcut in my Favorites to the Portable Freeware Collection web site (several DonationCoder programs listed on this site). The URL is: http://www.portablefreeware.com/
When I launch the shortcut manually, everything is honky-dory. Do people still say "honky-dory?"
However, when I launch the shortcut using F&R, it takes me to the following location: http://www.portablef...re.com/downloads.php
This confused me to no end until I edited the shortcut with a text editor. This is what the shortcut contained (minor editing):
URL=http://www.portablefreeware.com/-- Snip --
I went through a few dozen of my web shortcuts and found several where the BaseURL
did not match the URL
I have no idea what the BaseURL
is used for but shouldn't F&R use the URL
instead of BaseURL
to launch to a web site?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
