Firefox 0.9.1

I've finally got around to upgrading Firefox to version 0.9.1, and it's nice. It seems a little more snappy that it used to be, and I'm sure its memory footprint is smaller. Looks nice, too.

But I have a problem with it. Whenever I open a URL via a shortcut, I get an error dialogue: "The system cannot find the file specified". The page opens fine, though. It seems that I'm not the only one: Firefox problem. I tried the suggested solution, but the result was worse than the original symptom - Firefox ended up opening the contents of the shortcut file as text!

This is almost certainly the same problem as has been reported as breaking Python's webbrowser module on c.l.py, and I'm getting odd results opening URLs via Lookout, too - I'm getting a 'File Save' dialogue, though again, Firefox opens the page OK.

Anyone know of a fix for this? It's not a show stopper, but it is irritating.
