Can you view Test Complete exported logs (html files) in Chrome or Firefox?

Our exported test complete log html files are not rendering in Chrome or Firefox.
Adding the --allow-file-access-from-files command line parameter in Chrome has not solved the problem.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Firefox 35

IE 11 (correct log rendering)

Thanks in advance for your help

I figured it out. After the logs are exported, we programmatically alter testlog.xml and were allowing the default whitespace behavior. This resulted in default indenting to be applied, which caused the rendering trouble in Chrome and Firefox.
Solution was to set XmlDocument.PreserveWhitespace = true before saving testlog.xml.

The reference here

https://support.smartbear.com/viewarticle/70885/

explains that the log is being exported in mhtml format

 

Wikipedia has some options for opening those files in other browsers

Thanks for the response Marsha.

We are exporting as html though, not mhtml.  In Log.SaveResultsAs, the logFormat parameter = 1 (or IsHtml) and the result contains index.htm with external resources, rather than an mht file with resources contained within.

Has anyone encountered this issue?  This is with a .htm file, not .mht.
