make short cut open in IE when default browser is Firefox

By bill1229 ·
I have my pc setup with firefox as the dafault browser so any shortcuts setup for websites etc. open firefox by default.
I have one web based app that needs to open in IE. How can the shortcut URL line be configured to do this or is there something that needs to go into the shortcut key?

Thanks

Firefox IE Tab

I encountered the same situation you're facing sometime ago, and I solved it by installing the IE Tab addon for firefox.

You can setup IE tab to open sites using IE by specifying the URL of the site, and you can choose to open in in a new tab, or in an "external application", where it will open IE itself.

Mod that script to do what you want, and make a shortcut to wscript with args.
