    I have firefox in my bookmarks and I can luanch it from there, but I get the double warning without an opt out of the warning

    I get "do you want to run this file"

    and "it's not digitally signed"

    I ok and firefox is launched but I would love it to just launch without the warnings.

    of course I would love it to launch in a new tab but I don't think that's gonna happen

    also, is there a way to get ie to launch in a new tab on firefox?

    He wants the other way around j79zlr, launching FF from IE.

    I tried placing a shortcut to FF in the favourites folder under my user account and it launched it without any prompt. Are you using IE7 by any chance? I tested this with IE6.

    EDIT: If you want to launch a new tab in FF use this:

    Code:
    "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -new-tab [URL]http://www.michaelsoft.info/home/index.asp?color=black[/URL]
    For me this launches the site I use for my homepage. Otherwise its a blank tab I believe.

    thanx j79, that's ok for firefox, but the admiral is right, I want to do it in ie also



    it's ie7, and I have it in the favorites folder but I get the security prompt every time, I don't really want to turn off the prompt for everything, but I do want to turn it off for this

    the shortcut you posted does the same thing for me admiral

    Ah my bad, forgot it was IE. :nervous:

    I refuse to install IE7 because of all the annoying prompts it adds.
