When I get on my computer the first thing I do is open Firefox.

Is there a way I can have it open when I startup?

Thanks

Well, if you are using Firefox you go to Options/General & enter the location of your Homepage. It could be a Bookmark or.....

Perhaps put Firefox in the Startup Folder-

Click here for instructions

EDIT-

I just tried it with IE.
I created a shortcut to IE on the Desktop.
I opened my Startup folder & dragged & dropped the shortcut into it.
I restarted the computer & IE opened & my dialup connection started dialing.
It worked good.

See a picture-
