    I have firefox and thunderbird.
    When I get a web link on an email, I used to click on it, and it took me
    to the web page.
    This doesn't happen now, if I click on the web link, nothing happens, I
    have to cut and paste the link.
    Have I changed a setting somewhere?
    Any help appreciated.
    Running windows xp.

    Make sure that Firefox is your default browser.
    In Firefox: Tools -> Options -> General -> Default Browser

    I get this sometimes - not all the time though - and I have found that
    if I move the mouse pointer off the link after I've clicked it then FF
    opens it okay.
