I saved an online receipt using the firefox "save page as" feature. I have both the html icon and the file folder containing the elements. They are in the same location, my desktop. Yet, for some reason when I click on the html icon, all i get is a blank page. Can someone help me retrieve this, please. I critically need this receipt. Thanks.

I got it resolved. In case anyone else runs into this, here's what I did. I went to firefox and installed ieview addon, then opened the receipt in ieview after it came up empty in Firefox.
