How to write a quick executable to open website?

So I use Firefox as my default web browser, and I use Windows Live as my primary email. I have a cool quick-launch gadget for Google Sidebar and I want one of the quick launch buttons to open Firefox and direct it to, so I created a .html with one line:

<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=">/

When opening the file from my desktop, it works just fine. It opens Firefox (or creates a new tab if it's already open) and directs me to However, the Sidebar Gadget only opens .exe files. How do I write a quick .exe to open the .html I made?


The computer this is for is running Vista.
