DWF files won't open

Windows Vista, SP1.  TurboCAD Deluxe, 15.2, Build 48.3.  Firefox 3.0.10

I had some house plans scanned into DWF files by a local blueprint house.  When I try to open them I get the warning window saying the app has stopped working and two choices are presented - close the program or check online for a solution and close the program.

If I make the second choice I never get any kind of response whether my browser (Firefox) is running or not.

So, I guess I have two problems:
1)Why can't I open DWF files?
2)Why doesn't TC search for an answer for me?

I tried to attach one of the DWF files but  it is not allowed.

Can anyone help me out here? According to Help, DWF is a recognized file type.

Thanks to all.  I found the answer myself:

Help|Search|View|DWF Export Setup:
Note:  TurboCAD does not support importing from this format. DWF files created with this option can be viewed either in Autodesk DWF Viewer (v6.01 and up), or in other applications that support this format.

Help under Other CAD Formats confused me. ": DWF:Drawing Web format. See DWF Export Setup. Import is automatic."
