    This should fix the problem:
    Win+X->Control Panel->Default Programs then click on "Set your default Programs", click on Firefox then "Set this program as default"

    Thanks

    I'm not sure if I did that or not.

    Can't believe if the first computer was so easy why this is happening?

    I'll be back.
