New problem in last week. When clicking on a link, a window "Locating Web Browser" opens for a second before the URL I'm trying to open comes up. The problem is the "Locating the Web Browser" window stays open in the background and needs to be closed or it screws up web navigation.

Odd. This problem doesn't seem happen when I open URL in the "Favorite" tool.

I really like your Firefox Browser.

Could you attach a screenshot of the message (with the Add an attachment link on this page) for I have never seen this message and even Google has no results. Could you give an example of a link? Or do you mean a shortcut on your desk top?
