It looks to me as if your default association is set to Notepad rather
than a web browser. Try opening one of the browsers' settings pages
and making it your default browser. In Chrome, that's
chrome://settings/ and it's near the bottom; in Firefox, go to
Tools|Options, Advanced, and it's on the General tab. (They might
check on startup and offer to make themselves default, which would
save you some trouble.)
