I just looked that up and sounds like a great substitute to IE! Definitely going to check that out tomorrow, thanks!

Man, I can't remember exactly why that error happens. I used to be able to and it was all good.
Try saving the file instead of saying open with app X Y or Z. Don't remember if IE of that time had the ability or not.

After that have you proceeded to tell the OS 9 installer to "Preform a clean installation of the System Folder"?
After that is all said and done, open up Stuffit and from one the menu's(can't remember which) did you tell it to find the file you are trying to unstuff? I've found that just double clicking on the file will cause it not to work(I'm guessing what you're describing may be it).

After a complete reformat and reinstall of OS 9.2.2, it still won't launch Stuffit Expander (type 3 error.. save work & restart) and it won't let me open some system files like "Late Breaking News.." aka Mac Help.
(Also, sometimes when it goes to shut down.. it gives me a bomb error "Finder".. error type 7?
