Hi John:

I am not sitting in front of DW8 at the moment but try looking in the
Help menu for file associations. I remember that when DW is installed,
it asks you which filetypes you want DW associated with: if this dialog
can be prompted to appear again, you might be able to correct the issue
you have discovered.

I've had PHP installed on my machine for a while, and PHP pages within
Web site have always opened properly within my browser... until I
installed Dreamweaver 8.  Even though I unselected all file associations
during installation, something got screwed up: when I visit a PHP page,
both Firefox and IE prompt me to either download the file or open it in
PHPEdit (which I've also had installed for some time without this
issue).  So I assume Dreamweaver selected PHP as an association during
installation by default, then triggered the existing association with
PHPEdit somehow to override opening PHP files in my browsers.  I checked
my Firefox associations, but PHP is not listed (and you can only view
and edit, and not create, associations in Firefox options).
