How can I force a website to open with Firefox w/o making firefox my default browser?

Posted

I have one website that does not work in IE8 (XP) but works in Firefox. I keep a shortcut in my quickstart bar, I would like to open the web site, which is colorado overdrive library site, in firefox with a single click without making firefox my default browser.

hello, you'd have to create a special firefox shortcut for that website. create a copy of the mozilla firefox shortcut in the quicklaunch bar - then right-click that, select properties & in the shortcut tab add the url you want to open at the end of the target field (see screenshot - sry for the different language, but you should get an idea).
