Yes, some of it does. The file loads into the browser either way but 
subsequent navigation causes the browser content to go blank. It's 
because when queried, the URL the browser returns is "about:blank" 
instead of the file path.

I do feel a little stupid about forgetting to replace the spaces in the 
file path though. I knew about that but didn't notice them because the 
file does load okay initially.

If I store the original URL in a script local and append the hashtag to 
that, then it does work. I'll revise the report. If revBrowser would 
return the file path instead of "about:blank" it would be flawless.
