I have defined a site and when i try to preview it by clicking the icon at the bottom nothing happens , even on safari it doesn't work, but when i right click on the html file in the local sites and select open with, i can open it with all the browsers.

I had uninstalled and reinstalled Dreamweaver too.

I am on Big Sur 11.6.1

It's probably just as well.  Real-Time Preview relies on Adobe's servers to render the page in an <iframe>.  Just use the Static Browser Preview.  See screenshot.

Restart your computer.

 

If F12 still fails to open a browser, try Restore Preferences.
