Default browser latest Firefox. OS XPHome SP2. Clicking on a link in a plain text email would open Firefox & show the site, or, if already open, would show the site in a new tab. Have no idea why the change has occurred.

Speedy G: your link "Or this" won't connect.

Seems I need "OR this", as following the MS instructions produced a problem at the second action; it didn't work properly and gave the message:

"mshtml.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found.

This file can not be registered."

Since I have no idea what I'm doing, and before I progress to the "Or this" option, is there some action I should now take to undo whatever I did in the first place with the regsvr32 urlmon.dll action?

Speedy G, Apologies for not replying sooner. Registering the first three dlls succeeded. The last [msjava] did not & I suspect it's because the Sun is my java app.. I'm unable to change it to the MS version in Set Program Access & Defaults. Please advise what I should do?

You cant use MS Java. It wasnt included in SP2.

You have to use Sun Java.

Speedy G, Finally tried, "or this", but in Win Explorer/Tools/Folder Options/File Types/ the _only_ listing under URL is Internet Shortcut. There is _no_ HyperText Transfer Protocol. Maybe you can advise how this can be added?
