any clue how to tell firefox that .qfx files should start quicken 2007?

Posted

Firefox 3.6.3 (Mac) only knows about .ofx files from Quicken. I find no obvious way to add .qfx to the list, and the dialog ("open with this app", "always do this from now on) has no effect. eh?


This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Later version of Firefox, used to work, Once upon a time.

At the risk of being obvious, I have to say Duhhh - been there done that, a couple of times a weeks for the last many months. Hasn't worked. I mean Firefox will direct the each file to Quicken for the particular incident , but it DOES NOT "Do this for files of that type from now on".

And, BTW, it used to.
