Let's it will [URL-from-JavaFX.url]. Let's the file context is [InternetShortcut] URL=http://www.oracle.com Actual results: 1. Open the file at the first time. Everything works as expected - FF start with URL http://www.oracle.com. 2. In text editor change the line URL=http://www.oracle.com to URL=http://www.google.com without file renaming. 3. Save result. 4. Click [MyBest.url] again - FF opens with URL http://www.oracle.com Expected results: 4. Click [URL-from-JavaFX.url] again - FF opens with URL http://www.google.com Ups! You can even restart the FF - the content of shortcut is frozen in cache.
Seems that is MS OS problem, that stores URL in extended attribute. Sorry, that is not a FF problem.
