Launching Mozilla from this chatterbox client is easy. Unless you are using Win32 you will want to comment out that portion of the code and add something like the following:

my $pid; if (!defined($pid = fork)) { warn "cannot fork: $!"; return; } elsif ($pid) { warn "begat $pid"; return; # Iím the parent } exec 'mozilla', "$url";

This patch will launch the buttonpress event in Mozilla. Each press will launch a new browser with a separate process ID. Works for me!

Update I wanted each buttonpress to open the link in a new tab. This is done with a simple modification to the exec:

exec "mozilla -remote \"openurl($url,new-tab)\"";
