    So yesterday I began my attempt at switching to FireFox, and I've run into a snag...I use MSN Messenger, and there's a link where I can open up a browser to access my Hotmail account...the problem is, it opens up IE6 every time. I've set FireFox as my default browser, but I don't know what else to do in this situation. Is there any way to get MSN messenger to open FireFox when accessing my Hotmail account?

    hahah probably not. i don't think microsoft would let it so that MSN could open up the email box with anything other than IE.

    As far as I know it is hard coded into messenger.

    Someone needs to "crack" it so he can use something else. You could always get to your mail by going to the site on firefox and then just save it to favorites so you can just click on it when msn says you have mail.
