Firefox icons appear normally except the saved web pages. Tried fresh install of FF 20.0

OK glad you fixed it.

I would ensure you do full scans with different and up to date tools. You need to make sure you have got rid of everything.


Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.


Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

This sounds like a Windows problem, rather than a Firefox problem.

Windows associates certain applications such as Internet Explorer or Firefox with specific file types as indicated by the file extension.
(The last few characters after a dot in the filename {sometimes that is hidden and does not display) )

Presumably you have set Word to be the default application for opening HTML files.

Thank you John. I agree ...it was a Win problem. Not a user of Word, and after numerous Updates AND a subsequent virus attack...I chose to Restore 4 days back and so far OK. I will keep the links you provided for future reference.............. Thanks again................SM

J. Thank you again for your through attention. After ~ 13 scaning hours I did find some deep bugs. I was unfamiliar with Microsoft Safety Scanner and it found 3. Some blame may be directed at my choice of just previously selecting numerious MS updates and subsequent registry bind. Appreciate your effort..........SM
