Default Mozilla isn't default! Help!

    I've tried different browsers and have been using Advant. I read where
    Mozilla's Firefox is a secure browser to use and so I went and
    downloaded and installed it. When it came up, it did not ask if I
    wanted it to be the default browser and so I went into settings to
    make it that and it already said it was (probably from an earlier
    download). When I click onto any desktop icons, the Advant browser
    still comes up. I decided to uninstall the Advant and when I did,
    clicking onto any desktop icon does not open Firefox, but rather it
    opens the printer options window. So I had to download and reinstall
    Advant just to get the desktop icons to work. Any idea of what is
    going on here and more importantly, how can I fix it?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    From the Windows Start menu, open "Folder Options" and select the
    "File Types" tab.

    In the list, scroll down and select this entry

    Extension: (NONE)
    Type: URL:Hypertext Transfer Protocol

    Click "Edit", select "open" from the list box, then click "Edit".

    Q: What is "application used to perform action",
    and what are the other settings?
