Hello,
Firefox is working, but when I save link to desktop and then click on link it goes to print window. How can I correct this? Thanks.
Just tried IE for browser and it did same thing. I save the bookmark to desktop and when I click on icon I get "Print" window. How do I change this association in XP Pro?

Hiya Jeff B.

Make sure you click `copy shortcut` and not just `copy`. Another way is to try saving the URL to bookmarks in Firefox (Ctrl + D) then right-clicking on it in the bookmarks drop-down and copying the shortcut to the desktop.

Thanks Jenny,
The problem was registry related. I fixed it last night, but before the fix any firefox desktop icon would only bring up print dialogue box.
