double clicking pictures wont open on desktop

Specs: Macintosh
Hello everyone,
I suddenly have a problem whereby double-clicking on a photograph's icon no longer opens it. Photos in Applications and on Desktop fail to open.
Can someone help please? Scratching my head.
I am looking in Firefox Preferences but do not see what might need changing in there.

I have got lost somehow and cannot figure out what I have done to cause this?

Not until today have I experienced this problem.

Using a mac book pro, OSX, V10.5.8,
firefox web browser V 3.6.8
Any suggestions would be great, please.
Thank you.

Photos on your desktop shouldn't open (by default) in Firefox. Firefox generally opens webpages, but it is possible to open a photo by right-clicking (or holding down the "control" key while clicking), and a window should popup with an "Open With..." menu. You can navigate to tell it to open with Firefox, or you could try opening the picture with "Preview" which is the default program.
