I am using either one the following statements to call a url from a python addin using a thread.
#os.startfile(url)
#webbrowser.open(url,new=0)

Both work with default browsers are either chrome or firefox. The problem it crashes ArcMap when MS Explorer 9 is the default browser. Anyone ran across this? Any suggestions?
