This happened when I first launched TCOBrowser 0.84 and the README 
opened too. I can reproduce it now ...

It could be related to /Library/Internet\ 
Plug-Ins/AdobePDFViewer.plugin, since Safari has this symlink Adobe 
Reader 7.

Of course this works too for me!

Single- or double-click lead to the same: TCOBrowser tries to use the 
PDF plug-in, which fails. Then it remembers that it could use an 
external application as good, but it fails to use Adobe Reader 7, the 
only application left to choose.

This seems to be a routine that comes in when the first attempt to load 
a plug-in fails. So it asks the user to choose an external application.

To me the way how to deal with InterfaceBuilder and MainWindow.nib 
looks a bit different: four windows (MainWindow.nib, TCOBrowser, search 
field, and Cocoa-Windows) open. When I double-click on Drawer in 
Cocoa-Windows nothing happens. When I select that field and press 
Cmd-Shift-i a new window opens, NSWindow Info.

When I step through Cocoa-Windows' tools bar and come to the Cocoa 
Graphics View, I see four large logos: Safari, OpenGL, Finder, and 
QuickTime. Letting the cursor hover over Safari a tool tip "WebView" 
appears. Single- or double-clicking does not do anything, Cmd-Shift-i 
brings me back to the dead end street I mentioned before.

In MainWindow.nib an item "webDrawer" is shown. When I double-click it 
a new window NSDrawer Class Info opens, probably again in dead end 
street. webDrawer in same window is my next choice: on Cmd-Shift-i an 
NSDrawer Info window opens, but no "Enable plug-ins" visible.

It seems that I can't do the job based on your How-To ...
