    Anyone tried this:
    1. create a new file and name it anything liked, bug.txt
    2. copy the following:

    [InternetShortcut]
    url=file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:file:

    into that file.
    3. rename the file extension to .htm
    4. Just give it a shot (a run)

    I had a go. When it runs, it opens a new window (in Maxthon) showing the text I copied into the file. Am I missing something?
