Use external browser instead of local viewer

When using Firefox to display album by clicking on the html.index file in the Album Outpit Directory the images have a different background and you cannot move on to the next image. Everything displays ok in the internal jalbum preview. Can I use Firefox instead of the jalbum preview to view album?

Instead of heading into the output directory, just tell jAlbum to use your default browser for previews. Tools/jAlbum (Windows/Mac), Preferences, General, Preview, choose External browser. Leave Use embedded web server checked if you are using one of Laza's JSON skins, like Tiger and Photoblogger - otherwise, you'll get failures.

Thanks using Firefox instead shows the problem is consistent with a different operation on displaying images, will create a small album to try and diagnose problem.

As always, make sure you're refreshing your browser cache. Hit CTRL-F5 when viewing the album.

ETA: And, of course, don't tell jAlbum to process only updated subdirectories - that can produce a broken album in many situations.
