Hi DWCromer,

Are you saying that when you try to open a link stored on your desktop that it opens in IE instead of FF? You should take a look at Make Firefox your default browser. Once you've done that, they should open in FF automatically.

Hopefully this helps!

Matt, I appreciate your prompt reply. I already use that solution. I am looking for an URL I can put in the shortcut that , when in IE, the URL will say "go to Mozilla.com + (my site).

I have tried several versions but to no joy. Can you or anyone help Thanks David

What kind of shortcuts are that?

Are that internet (.url) shortcuts that open the default browser?

You can try to redo the default browser and temporarily make IE the default browser and then let Firefox once again make itself the default browser.

I have an organization site that I sometimes reach with a desktop shortcut. When my browser is set for IE it opens there. When my browser is set for Mozilla (FF) it opens there. I know how to switch back and forth and I do since there are some features of the site that work better in IE and features that work better in FF.

I would like not the switch back and forth. I would like a second desktop shortcut that will open when IE is the browser and then read "go to FF and load my site.

If you want to open a desktop shortcut with a specific browser then you need to modify a copy of the Firefox or IE desktop shortcut and add the URL to the target (command) line in that shortcut.
