      Description

      We are using URLDisplayer and its NetBeans implementation NbURLDisplayer to open the URL in the default browser. It looks like, the URL is correct as well as the fragment that is concatenated.

      • The first time IE is opened, it displays the URL plus the fragment correctly.
      • If we hit F1 again, a new tab is open but this time, only the URL is displayed without the fragment.
      • If we close the browser, it will open the URL plus the fragment correctly. If we open new IE browser each time we press F1, then the URL will be correct and the specified Help page will be displayed. However, this implementation is not very user-friendly as each time the user presses F1, a new browser would be open instead of a new tab. If we implement this change it won't affect only IE, but all browsers, thus changing the current user journey.
