Favorites all changed to URLs

From: Rick Tidd

 

 

All of my favorites changed to url.  They no longer work the same.  Upon clicking properties on any of the favorites, I get a window with only a general tab.  It lists the name of the favorite with the ending being   .url.  If I try to change it in any way I get a message that changing the name may not allow it to work.  If I change the url ending in any way the link no longer works.  All of my favorites have changed.  The only thing installed recently was Mozilla broweser.  I told it to import favorites from IE.  I am running Windows XP professional, and IE 7.

Any help will be appreciated.

thanks

Rick
