    Hello everyone,
    Now I know some people wouldn't even consider it a problem, but when I click
    on a url in an e-mail, Internet explorer pops up as my browser. How can I
    make it so that Firefox comes up as my prefered browser?
    I've tried looking in Ffox settings and can't find any (though I expect
    there probably is) and the same with IE6 - can't find the settings.
    Many thanks,
    Mike

  2. In Firefox: Tools / Options / General / Default Browser - tick the box.
    Then restart Firefox.

    Hope this works

    Worked a treat! Thanks John. I must have been through those settings a dozen
    times and missed it every time, Doh!
    Thanks again,
    Mike
