In older versions of Notepad++ under the run menu there were options such as "Internet Explorer" and "Firefox" that when clicked opened the current script/HTML in the web browser. How do you get it back? I tried Run->Run->selecting FireFox.exe->Save As but when I try to use it nothing happens.

I'm using version 6.3.2

Here is Notepad++\shortcuts.xml

Have a look in \program files\notepad++\shortcuts.xml to see if "Launch in Firefox" is register. – cfreire May 6 '13 at 18:20

You don't specify which version. I am using 6.3.2 and they are shown in the Run menu. Perhaps they were deleted from the Shortcut mapper. Here is the screenshot from mine:

Copy the lines corresponding to the missing shortcuts from \program files\notepad++\shortcuts.xml (Or what you pasted in your question) to %appdata%\Notepad++\shortcuts.xml
