Like many folk I have both IE (8) and Firefox on my machines. Firefox is the default and used 95% of the time but IE is retained because there are a few sites that will only work properly with that browser.

Never had a problem with this over quite a long time

Today on ONE machine (two others are fine) if I open IE8 - no initial problem ie it opens at the expected page - but THEN try to open ANY of the listed "favourites"

- then THAT will open in Firefox !!!

I have even gone to the extent of configuring IE8 so that it is the default browser - but still when I open any of the 'favourites' - or type any known web address into the IE8 command line - then the ****** thing opens in Firefox

Confused
Any pearls of wisdom to cast in my direction?

Not sure if this also applies to IE8 but might be worth a look:

Weeeee - that sounds to be JUST what I need.

It is (for me) a bit later to have a go at that tonight - I will leave it until tomorrow when hopefully I am a bit more alert.

Presuming it works it does however beg the question

WHY did this problem only arise today??? Earlier in the afternoon I was happily changing between Firefox and IE8 and they both behaved as normal

I will let folk know what happens
