    RRWebBrowser IE plugin

    I think this is for mitch, or whoever else worked on this plugin,

    I'm trying to get the plugin to load my 'homepage' on startup, but the problem is my homepage is an html file stored on local disk. The plugin loads I.E. but does not go to the page set up as IE default (in my case c:\startpage.html ) but loads a blank page. setting the homepage to "file:///blah" in the skin.ini results in cannot load page, because it seems the plugin is automatically shoving an http:// prefix in front.

    Currently my only working solution to this is to run a very tiny http server and set my homepage as localhost:8080/startpage.html
    as you could imagine on a car pc, you really dont want to be running extra processes and servers that just take up extra cpu/ram.

    could you tweak the code or provide source so that either:
    1. when loading "WEB" I.E. goes to its own default homepage, unless WEBGOHOME is called instead
    2. check for a "file:///" when parsing skin.ini to not throw the http:// in front of the string

    thanks,
    mike
