View Full Version : Links from email

I have 2 problems which appear related:
OS XP and running Firefox as my default browser and thunderbird as email.
(1) links do not work when I click on them in an inward email ,they are highlited and the address appears on mous over.
(2) links to URLS which I have previosly set up on my desktop ask
"which program do you wish to use to open" and firefox is not in the list of possibles.When I click on OE it only works untill I shut down and then on start up it reverts to asking which prog etc.
I was running Mozilla and all worked good until I installed Firefox.

I don't have Firefox, but if my memory is correct your problem has been asked several times here and is to do with Firefox being your default browser. I think you have to make IE your default browser for the links to work.

I have IE as my browser and OE as my mail server and I have begun to suffer the same thing. Not sure exactly when but around the time I upgraded to AVG7, anyone else noticed this problem?

If u have XP SP2, u can go to start / set program access and defaults , click on custom / click on the arrow at the end and select mozilla firefox. Links might work then. BUT if u havent got SP2 installed. You'll have to make ie the default browser.
