Fireworks uses a form of .png as its native file format (which many people find unfortuante) The Fireworks format includes some additional information, allowed by the specification, so you want to make sure that, if you want a .png for the Web, you export from you Fireworks image, not just save.
In any case you can re-associate the file types. Exactly how you re-associate file types depends on your OS.
In Vista, right click on a .gif and select 'Properties.' Under 'Type of file', click on the 'Change'
button and change the associate application. Make sure the checkbox next to 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file' is checked.
I am using Windows XP SP2 and I have set the default viewer of PNG files back to the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. However, that doesn't resolve the issue.
Please clarify your issue more!
Do you want Fw to be the default .png Viewer?
No, I don't want to Firework to be the default png viewer, but this issue has been fixed by changing the default viewer of PNG files back to the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer.
After installing Fireworks CS3, when clicking a link to a PNG image, IE displays a download dialog instead of opening the image. This is the problem.
