For as long as I can remember the Preview function of Construct 2 has been very glitchy. In my experience it'll only react to you clicking on the preview button 1 time out of 5, and in 90% of cases it opens a new game tab instead of updating the already existing one.
Sometimes it opens the wrong browser - especially if you have preview tabs already open in multiple browsers - and sometimes you have to frantically spam F5 or the preview button in order to get the preview to launch at all.

Steps to Reproduce Bug
- Download Construct 2 on Windows 7 or 8 64-bit.
- Start a new project - or even better - open an already existing one.
- Run preview by clicking on the preview button.
Preview doesn't launch properly and when it does run at all, focus is rarely switched over to the browser.
For preview to launch immediately upon pressing F5 or the preview button, and for window focus to switch over from Construct 2 to the browser tab where the preview is running, whether it's a new tab or an already existing one.
- Chrome: YES
- FireFox: YES
- Internet Explorer: YES
