    Whenever I click on a link to a font such as a .ttf file in an email, it
    opens in IE and even if I try to save it it saves as a .htm file.

    How can I fix this?

    Huh? Why would someone send you a link to a font in an email?

    Rt\click on a font (.ttf) Properties and change the association to
    fontview.exe.(Windows Font Viewer).
    Or go into Tools\Folder options and change it there.

    No, this was an actual font. I believe my file associations are still
    messed up from when I had FF installed.

    It isn't the END of a URL that determines which application opens --
    it's the BEGINNING that matters. The very opposite of Windows.

    And so, once that application opens, the way the browser uses the file
    is a function of how the browser is told to behave for that kind.

    Maybe you can go one step up from that URL and save the file it points
    to; you may even have to right-click on it to do that.
