View Full Version : view-source: from the address bar not working

I used to be able to type "view-source:" before a web address and notepad would open with the page source, as if I had right-clicked and selected view-source from the context menu. However this doesn't work anymore.

Admittedly I can't remember when it did last work (might have been a couple of years ago), so it might not be a Win XP function, or perhaps it has been removed from IE6?

Any suggestions?

It doesnt seem to work on IE6 here, but does work within Firefox. I hadn't known of this, are you sure it used to work with IE?

are you sure it used to work with IE?Quite sure - I don't (and won't) use anything else.

On my machines it will not work in Opera 7.54u1 nor Internet Explorer on Win XP SP2 (version 6.0.2900.2180) but it will work in Firefox on the same machine and in Internet Explorer version 6.0.2800.1166 on Windows 98.

Whatever it is, it's annoying, and I'm keen to get my hands on a way to get around it (and switching browser isn't going to work for me, sorry).
