I have shortcuts on my desktop to my most used websites (eg a forum I run, Digital Spy, my son's college website).
No problem accessing them using IE but if I am using Firefox, my preferred browser, before the websites open up I get the error noise and a box opens with a big red cross and an error message sayin "Windows could not find the website "name of website" please check the name and try again.
The website does then open without me doing anything else. Its very frustrating having to close this box down every time and wondered if anyone could advise me how to stop it happening?
Have you tried remaking the desktop links? As Technotiger says I would think that either using tabs or links on the FF toolbar would be far more efficient. Otherwise you presumably have to close FF each time you want to go to a different link.
