How can I get firefox to open a local file on Windows 8.1via File:open?
I am trying to open a file from the desktop for viewing as a webpage. It is edited in MS Word. When I open the file it just shows the the text of the file, which is html code, it does not run the file as a webpage. How do I get the file to run as a webpage? Thank you.

Make sure that the file has the .html file extension. That should be sufficient.
Windows hides some file extensions by default. Among them are .html and .ini and .js and .txt, so you may only see file name without file extension. You can see the real file type (file extension) in the properties of the file via the right-click context menu in Windows Explorer.
