Default DREAMWEAVER/FIREFOX ISSUE

I AM SORT OF A NOVICE. I HAVE A WEBPAGE CREATED IN DREAMWEAVER AND HAVE HAD NO PROBLEMS WITH IT. I INSTALLED FIREFOX THE OTHER DAY AND WHEN I WENT TO EDIT MY PAGE AND UPLOAD IT, EVERYTHING CHANGED TO A FIREFOX DOCUMENT. NOW WHEN I TRY TO EDIT, DREAMWEAVER SHUTS DOWN.

1) I think that when you installed firefox, you configured it to be your default browser. That's why all your .htm/.html files are bearing the firefox icon.

2) How do you edit your files? Do you right-click on the .htm/.html and choose open with dreamweaver/notepad?

The appropriate way would be to open dreamweaver and then choose which file you would wanna open and edit/upload. Dreamweaver has fantastic site management tools that allow you to manage your files and edit multiple website files that sit in different folders.

Check out this links.

Hope this is helpful.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPLY.

1) YOU ARE PROBABLY CORRECT ABOUT FIREFOX BEING THE DEFAULT.

2) I AM OPENING DREAMWEAVER, DOUBLE CLICKING THE FILE IN THE BOX IN THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER. WHEN IT OPENS, I TRY TO EDIT IN LAYOUT FORM. I GET A "FATAL ERROR" MESSAGE AND DREAMWEAVER CLOSES.

SHOULD I TRY TO EDIT IN THE CODE FORM?

I HAVE JUST TRIED TO EDIT IN CODE VS LAYOUT. SEEMS TO WORK OK.

NOW I HAVE TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO CONVERT THE FIREFOX FILES TO SOMETHING ELSE.

THANK YOU

Hi there,

You may want to read this:

in order to reset IE as your default browser.

By the way: no need to shout; we hear you loud and clear (writing in ALL CAPS is considered shouting in public forums).

Sorry. Didn't mean to shout. My ignorance. I don't get into public forums very often.

Do you think if I change my default browser, that the files will change back when I edit them?

The website I am working on is: aaloc.com. It is my wife's organization. The site was originally designed by a member of the organization. He was doing the updates but decided to stop doing it so I am sort of stuck with it and am trying to learn.

I appreciate very much your assistance.

I see from your website that you are in the Netherlands. I do some business in Groningen and have some good friends there. Nice place.
Thank you again.

Yeah, it's a nice place. It's been while since I was there, though...

Not sure what you mean with this: "the files will change back when I edit them"

Typically, default programs determine the behavior when files are double-clicked. So, you double-click a .html file, and it opens Firefox (or IE, when that's the default browser).

However, that shouldn't change how Dreamweaver behaves. You should be able to open a file in Dreamweaver in either code or design view without crashing. Have you applied the latest service packs for Dreamweaver?

Only problem I have in Groningen is the bikes are so quiet, it is easy to get hit by them.

Not sure what you mean with this: "the files will change back when I edit them"

When I edited the first time after installing Firefox, all the files changed to "Firefox file" sort of automatically. I was wondering whether now that I have reset to IE as the default, whether they will change again.

Typically, default programs determine the behavior when files are double-clicked. So, you double-click a .html file, and it opens Firefox (or IE, when that's the default browser).

However, that shouldn't change how Dreamweaver behaves. You should be able to open a file in Dreamweaver in either code or design view without crashing. Have you applied the latest service packs for Dreamweaver?

No. I will check into that.

No, they won't change automatically again. Setting up a program as a default for a file type is typically done during installation.

However, Firefox has an option to make it the default browser again (choose Tools | Options and check the "Always check to see if Firefox is the default browser on startup" option).
