My Photos CAN be opened w/my Scanner App. no prob.
However months ago something happened and my icon
for Mozilla on the photos change from a grey bkgrnd to
a white bkgrnd. Still has the Mozilla T-Rex Logo on it.

Have found some help as to going to the 'Settings' to
'File Options' to remove file-types. Mozilla is NOT there?
> Not sure what to do. Just installed XP on my other drive
no problem there of course.

When I click to open a photo the Mozilla window opens for
a split second and then goes away. - Hope YOU can Help!!!:=)
