    How can I open .url shortcuts instead of downloading them?

    Hello. A while back I was able to open my .url shortcuts with both chrome and firefox.
    But now they both download them instead.
    Same thing happens when I try Ctrl+O.
    It downloads the file instead of seeing it as a url shortcut.
    I've googled it, and in windows you can solve this by choosing "internet brower" for the file extension.
    But I have no idea how to do this in xubuntu or any oter linux versions for that matter.
    And in xfce you can't even specify the software with the command line. I can only choose between the .desktop shortcuts in the start menu.

    Please help.
