    After installing the new build 14965 any desktop shortcut to a website, that worked before the new build, fails to load the site in the new build. W10 shows it downloading a file then tries to open the file in the browser. The URL says its


    The shortcuts fail on both FireFox 49.0.2 and Chrome 54.0.2840.99 m

    MS Edge works fine!

    If I drag/drop the shortcut to the browser the site opens no problem. Is this a "wait for the 3rd party browsers to catchup"?

    most likely, compatibility issues as the shortcuts work well for MS edge. I will add more once i have anything more to share.

    Same issue here. MS seems to systematically prevent more and more non MS apps to function. Still can't use Malwarebytes either.
