Outlook Express question

In Outlook Express when I click an emailed link my Explorer browser opens. I'd rather it open in Firefox since I usually have that open already but I can't find a setting to change. Anyone know how to set this for Firefox? Thanks

I had looked there. The email section says Netscape, Firefox is not listed as a choice and it comes up Explorer. ?

Try this:

Go to Windows Explorer>Tools>Folder Options> File Types tab>Click on the words "file types" so it sort alphabetically, Scroll down until you see:
URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol
> Highlight it only>Click the Advanced button>
under "actions highlight "open"
Click the "EDIT" button>
for the "Application to perform action", it should read:Copy/paste if need be
C:\PROGRA~1\MOZILL~1\FIREFOX.EXE -requestPending -osint -url "%1"

OK out of all the boxes and test OE>Firefox

Internet Explorer should read:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome
