Using Eclipse 3.2 and suddenly the Java dynamic help doesn't work. Pressing F1 just brings up the help about the java editor but nothing about the framework. I had this occur to me before with 3.1, never found out what caused it. I installed 3.2 and it worked for a while, but now it's gone again.

It's bothersome to have to go look for things online...

Any help would be appreceiated!

You mean the window that pops up via "Help -> Help Contents"? Or maybe you have to click on "all Topics" in the bottom of the F1 Help Window.

I mean the help window (dynamic help) that pops up when pressing f1. It used to work that if I had the cursor on for example ArrayList in the code the links on top in the f1-window would lead to help regarding ArrayList in the framework. Now I can't seem to get to the java framework help at all from inside eclipse...

Ah ok I see. I tried it with - String - and it shows the Help View with related topics...The first entry is about - Javadoc for 'java.lang.String'.
The help is a bit configurable. Like using a View instead of a Popup.

For myself I never used the F1 Help for specific information about Java classes. Most times I have my webbrowser with the API opened or I use the documentation annotation that occurs while hovering an item.

ok, I guess that works too, though I found it very handy to go straight to the api documentation through f1...
