Hello,

Sorry if this question was already asked (I though it was... but did not found the exact answer in the archives).

I use R 2.2.0 and just updated to Firefox 1.5 (note that I already got the same result with Firefox 1.x.x) under Win XP sp2 US (full details of my config hereunder). When I try to use the HTML help search page, I can make a search: the message 'Applet SearchEngine started' appears in the statusbar and I got a result page, but that result page points to incorrect links like:

'file:///library/stats/html/ave.html'

Obviously, that link should have been something like:

'file:///c:/Program%20Files/R/R-2.2.0/library/stats/html/ave.html'

Any idea why the first part of the link is missing in the result page? On the same machine, using IE 6, it works like a charm (but I don't want to use that damn IE!!!).

 > R.Version()
$platform
[1] "i386-pc-mingw32"

$arch
[1] "i386"

$os

$system

$status

$day

$"svn rev"

$language

and in Firefox 1.5, about:plugins, retuns me: Installed plug-ins
...
