      Description

      Being new to NetBeans I first clicked on [Take a Tour] and received the Error message:
      "Could not access the URL through the external browser. Check the browser configuration."
      First I would have appreciated a hint where this can be done (Tools/Options/General) and
      second I wonder why my Firefox is not detected, although it is set as default in the Windows settings under Apps/Standard Apps.
      However, when explicitly selecting Firefox in the Options dialog, everythings works fine.
