I've started using firefox today, but if I click on my email through MSN Messenger, it opens an explorer window... how do I get it to open in firefox?

make firefox your default browser?

It says it is :S

MSN Messenger is hard coded to open "New e-mail message" links with Internet Explorer. Unfortunately, every currently known workaround involves downloading and installing additional software.
Sorry FlameBoo you will just have to open another email account with Yahoo or Googlemail etc unless you feel confident to install/configure the additional software required.

PS don't stop using Firefox - it's fab

firefox is much better than ie , imo

I'm trying out googlemail today too

Thought I'd make sure i liked it before changing my address with everyone though.

Thankyou - at least I know its not just me being silly!

jsut wondering, why is firefox better? I have both but rarely use it, just because IE is default.

Tabbed Windows - a modern miracle

Yup - the tabbed windows are great, and it just feels better somehow (now I'm starting to get used to it that is!!!)

I can't get firefox to work for some reason so I have no idea why it is so wonderful. Would really like to find out.

Don't think my PC likes it

mine aren't tabbed <confused> It's acting the same as ie.

I use Safari as I can't get Firefox (damn work anti-download policy) but agree IE is rubbish. Have link in toolbar to Hotmail though, so usually use that rather than going through MSN.
