Regarding creating a desktop shortcut to a website. When I drag/drop icon to desktop and click to open, I get "print" box not the website.

When I double click on Firefox icon, It brings me to "print box". What is the problem and how can it be fixed? Thanks, Jeff

Have you set FF as your default browser? If not the links you put on your actual computer or desktop will default automatically to whatever application you have set as default for that particular file extension, in this case web pages.
