You would do better just using the installer in Firefox. If you do not want
to do that then drag and drop the .xpi file to the extension window.

When I double click in Notetab all the urls open in FF. See this,
Also go to Folder Options in Control Panel and find these,
URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol
URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol with Privacy
You will find these in File Type and click on the advance button. Then
either add Firefox or if there already set it to default.

Pro in Firefox it reads the name of my file (In this case it's
bilpic.htm) and opens a blank page and a second one doing a default

all external program calls open in a new tab, rather than a new
browser. While you are there, take a look at the 150 or so other
extensions you can add onto Firefox. I particularly like the
EditCSS extension which allows you to edit your CSS file on the
fly and display the results live.
The reason different people have different results is that
browser calls from external programs (such as NTP) are user-
Hope this helps.
