I get an online foreign newspaper sent to me every day and I've been reading it for years. Now when it arrives I can't open any of the articles because a window pops up saying, The address is not valid. The address in question should read for example; www.nameofpaper.com/articles/view/20180436/world/north-korean-missile-blows-up-on-test-launch.645586
But instead it has the following before the WWW; C:\Users\myname\Desktop\/
If I copy the address into word and strip off C:\Users\myname\Desktop\/ then I can open the article, read it and comment on it but obviously it is a pain having to do that. I should also point out that the message box that pops up stating that the address is not valid is from Internet Explorer. I don't use Internet Explorer as a browser, I use Firefox.
Any idea what is going on here and how I can fix it?
