Hello to all and best wishes for the Christmas season!!
I have the latest version of Thunderbird email running on winXP pro. When i click on a link in an email that i receive it opens that link in Internet Explorer (which i have on my system for very occasional use). I would like the selected page to open in Firefox which is my browser of choice.
2nd query - when i try to forward an email with pictures inside, the forwarded message does not hold the pics.
i have looked in all the options inside thunderbird, but cannot find how to change these settings.
many thanks in advance....

1st issue - set Firefox as the default browser. Go to Control Panel and go to Add/Remove Programs, then click the bottom tab on the left. :) Can't help you with the second issue though.

Try this ( from Thunderbird forum) http://mailtagger.mozdev.org/index.html

I've not tried it so proceed with caution. Other ideas get a mention in the TB forum.
