I'm developing an application and in that application I'd like to open the browser with a specific url. As I understand it, the way to do this is QDesktopServices:penUrl(). This works fine if the browser is not already started, but if the browser is started and is in the background, then the openUrl call does nothing. This seems to be a known error: http://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/browse/QTBUG-19201
From what I can see, this bug has not been fixed and I don't know if it's going to be fixed.
There seems to be a workaround and that is to add the SwEvent capability, but I'd rather not do that.
It seems like this would be a quite common problem. Is there anyone that has another way around this?
