Some webloc should be fileloc

“The Internet location file can’t be opened because it’s damaged” is what Finder says about .webloc containing file:// URLs. Rename them to .fileloc and everything is fine. On the flip side EF can’t display/edit .fileloc.

I ran into this by using the official webloc bookmarklet to capture from Safari and LaunchBar to open them.

Thanks for the report. I will look into adding better support for .fileloc files. Just out of curiosity, could you describe why you are bookmarking local files?

I use multiple browsers and don’t like the bookmarks in any of them, so it all goes through EF and LaunchBar, including my local copies of certain developer documentation. I’m not always online.
