Making a file open with a specific program

Specs: Windows XP, 1GB

This is just a small nuisance but I hope someone may be able to help me with it.

My default internet browser is Google Chrome, and I don't want to change this. However, there is a certain HTML file which (for reasons I couldn't be bothered explaining here) I always need to open in Firefox.

To do this I need to start Firefox, then go to File/Open and select this file (because if I just click directly on this file then it will automatically open in Chrome).

I would like to keep to be able to keep Chrome as my default internet browser, but to make this file automatically open with Firefox by just just clicking on it.

Could anyone please tell me a way of configuring this?

Thanks a lot.

Find the file, hold shift and right click on the file. Select "Open with" and a window opens. Check the box that says, always open with this program, then select firefox from the list.
