    When I drag and drop an URL from a browser to a mindmap, the hyperlink points to a local file on my workstation like: C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\Google.url
    I've tried 3 different browser without success. This used to work, but now something is broken. Anyone?
    Thanks beforehand!

    Peter.

    Hi, I've fixed this by replacing my Java 7 (1.7.0_09) by the good old Java 6 (SR11) and now things are working again. It would be nice to clearly state the java versions that Freemind supports. It's not just "Java 1.4 or higher" but rather "Java 1.4 or higher but not too high" ;-)
    P.S.: The Java 1.7 also caused other annoyances like for example in my Chrome browser…
