When I click on a website icon on my desktop, I quite often, but not always, get an error message advising me that Windows cannot find the website and telling me to be sure I have typed the name correctly and then again. Then the website I am seeking opens up. It seems to me that the website opens just about as fast as it did before I started getting these error messages. This occurs on some websites but not on others. It used to occur on both IE6 and Firefox, but now it occurs only on Firefox. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and redid the icons but that did not help. If I type the URL in the address bar at the bottom I do not get the error message. Also, I have a document in MS Works in which I list some URLs. Sometimes, when I go to that page and click on one of the website addresses, I get an error an MS Works error message advising that the system cannot find the file specified and then the website opens up.
Even though the problem is only a nuisance since the websites do open up and the problem does not seem to delay this, I would like to get rid of it if I can.
