    Windows 14.393.187 Update breaks links folder Firefox


    So, I just updated 3 machines with update 14393.187 *Eek I have Firefox as default browser on all 3 machines. After reboot shortcuts .URL in links on desktop won't open by default. Message ''unknown file type do you want to open this file''.

    The fix is to go to user folder and reset default location of favorites moving all files with it. Copy all favorites files from new location. Create a new Favorites folder in old location. Paste folders from default location to new folder. Move favorites location to new folder. DO NOT REPLACE FOLDERS when prompted.

    Problem solved on all 3 machines. *Party

    :)

    I can't move my screen up on pcmag.com on Lumia 635 w/Win 8.1

    Seriously? In the 31+ years of computers, you've never had a browser update break a website? IE7, 8, 9? Firefox 2, 3, 4 and up? Safari? Chrome? Updates to browsers break websites all the time as they add new features or better comply with standards. The
    website fixes their code and everyone moves on.
