Firefox & Word Document

By lealecraypots ·
When I try to open a word doc I have to right click and use the "Open With" if I open in a normal way it opens Firefox Mozilla and then opens hundreds of tabs thats a near impossible to beat without shutting the PC down. It would make a good game.
Do you know anything or anyway I can fix this.

I'm not sure how the default Word extension .doc got associated with Firefox.

The fact that it opens hundreds of tabs suggests that you have a virus or mal-ware infection.

Run a virus scan, then AdAware and / or Spybot.

Then, open Windows Explorer.
From the Tools Menu, select Folder Options.
Click on the File Types tab.
Scroll down and find the .doc extension.
If multiple doc extensions are listed, remove all except the one for the program you use (Word?).

If doc is only listed once, select it and change the program it is associated with from Firefox to your word processor.
