Create Shortcut to website On Your Desktop

I have created a shortcut on the desktop for my son to access his favorite website. The problem is that Windows is not opening Firefox like it is supposed to. Upon double-clicking the shortcut, Windows informs me that there is no program associated with the file. I have gone into ¡°Folder Options -> File Types¡± and associated .url extension with the command line that opens Firefox. Am I missing something?

When you have a file or a website that you visit extremely often, sometimes it is easier to create a shortcut on your desktop rather than always looking for it. I am using IE 6.0 so I know this works for me. Go to tools/internet options/advanced/and scroll down and disable “reuse windows for launching shorcuts”. Click apply and okay. Close IE and reopen and try again.

I was wondering if there was a keyboard shortcut (ex some combination of keys) that would open a new tab in Internet Explorer. I used to have a little “button” that said ‘new tab’ or sth but for some reason it just disappeared… Any ideas how to put it back on?
