When I try to open an HTML file with Firefox, I get an error message similar to the following one:

Windows cannot find 'E:\blar blar\something\example.htm'. Make sure your typed the name correctly, and then try again.

How can I solve this problem?

Is E: drive a subst drive and you are running Firefox in a different context than the command window you used to subst the drive? E.g. command window in the admin context and Firefox in the limited user context? – Jun 13 '11 at 7:17

the error says the name is wrong, you might have typed it in incorrectly.

open the folder E:\blar blar\something and double click, or drag the file 'example.htm' into firefox.

it could be also because your filename is example.html , not example.htm – dbza Apr 15 '11 at 11:50
i already double click the file but it pop-up . – Naing Lin Aung Apr 15 '11 at 12:24
it wd be good if you could post a sceenshot of the error . seems like you are getting a msg window from javascript or like. – dbza Apr 15 '11 at 18:04
