Search for a javadoc symbol using say using shift+F1. A document window opens up with a result list and a content pane.
Previously, double clicking on a result item would open the content pane in an external browser, this is no longer the
case starting with NetBeans 6.5
The regression was caused by fixing issue 114175 (http://hg.netbeans.org/main/rev/2fbb9d8f9381).
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200812030201* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
