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.

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1419/

It adds an entry to the context menu on firefox that gives you the option to open the link in a new tab with IE.


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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
