Hello.

I want a specific bookmark on my desktop to open with Firefox or Safari, because it requires a certain plug-in that doesn't work with Chrome, my default browser. So I go to "Get Info" on the file, "Open with", "Other...", and I choose Firefox, then click the checkbox "Always open with". I close out the Get Info window, then double-click on the bookmark on my desktop. It opens with Chrome. I set it to open in Firefox.

Is there any way I can fix this and make it open in Firefox? I've googled and I can't seem to find an answer.

Here is the link I found that is close to giving me an answer.

How about making an Applescript with the below code and save as an app on the desktop. Just change the URL as you like.

Code:
tell application "Firefox"
   OpenURL "http://www.cnn.com"
end tell

AppleScript Error

Firefox got an error: Can’t get URL "http://myharmony.com/".
