    Default Double instance of Firefox opening

    Since I upgraded FF to v14 the other day,, when I click on a link in T/Bird to go to a web site, FF opens two identical windows.
    Have had a google around but can't seem to find any solution, any ideas?

    Running XP sp3,Cheers

    Ta speedy, tried this "1. Open Explorer
    2. Select Tools and then Folder Options
    3. Select the File Types tab
    4. Select Extension: (NONE), File Type: HyperText Transfer Protocol
    5. Click Advanced toward the bottom of the window
    6. In the Edit File Type window, select open and click Edit
    7. Clear the DDE message box (which should contain "%1")
    8. Click OK, Click OK
    9. Repeat for File Type: HyperText Transfer Protocol with Privacy"

    but no luck, this wasn't happening before the update.
