i have firefox 126.96.36.199
.html files used to have the firefox icon, now they have the notepad icon. when i try to do “right-click > open with…” it shows some programs. when i browse for firefox.exe and choose it, nothing happens: it doesn’t appear in the list of open with programs, and it remains listed as a txt file type.
possible foul up causes:
i had tried to install firefox beta 3. after trying the lifehacker trick so my extensions would work, hitting enter in the location bar did nothing and some other extensions i wanted still didn’t work so i uninstalled.
while looking at the list of install/uninstall programs, i also uninstalled a firefox version 1.5 i still had.
a few hours later later i noticed the html files stopped behaving like they belonged to firefox.
going to file types under folder options doesn’t help: browsing for the program to open a file goes to the same open with… dialog that can’t select firefox.exe.
what am i missing here?
