Is there a way in Firefox to create the Firefox shortcut to my html

Brian GeeCommented:
Other than changing your default Web browser to Firefox from IE, I think here are some options:

Launch Firefox and then drag your HTML shortcut into the body of the Firefox window
Adding Firefox to your SendTo folder so that you can right-click the HTML shortcut file and then go to Send To > then choose Mozilla Firefox
Create a batch file that you run to launch the URL in Firefox

First, your solution tells what could be used but doesn't tell the originator what to do with that string you offered. Second, other viable and useful alternatives were presented to the question originator's inquiry. Third, the question originator felt that both offered solutions were helpful to him or her thus his/her decision accordingly.
