      You need to make sure that the url is pointing to the correct directory path.

        Are you sure that is part of the Mac (OSX) install package? When I try to launch help it can't find this file, and I can't find it anywhere else.

      The problem is that the help document,, is provided, but isn't where FreeMind expects it.  It's in
      If you type that path into the URL bar on the browser, the help document will come up.
      One should be able to change this by editing one's user.preferences file (at least the commented-out option is there, but when uncommented and changed, it doesn't do anything.)

      A little more work and I found the key browsemode_initial_map (at line 243 in user.preferences).  Changing that fixes the Documentation and the error boxes coming up when one switches to browse mode.
