MSN - browser settings

#1
I was wondering - is there any way of getting msn to open hotmail in firefox rather than in IE when u click its little links saying you have new mail (the ones that pop up, or the link within the main window?

I always click them if i want to read an important mail that comes in - but IE is the devil and id like to remove this final link to its use!

cheers

When I do this in trillian it opens in your default web browser ie firefox. Try resetting firefox as your default browser by going to its options

yeah i tried that - firefox is set as default in windows - but there is no option in msn to do that :( so it still activates IE when u click the link.

Anyone know of a hack?

It may be hardcoded into MSN and that is why there is no option to change it...Microsoft likes to do this. :(

Install MSN Plus! and then install StuffPlug-NG plugin from here:

http://www.stuffplug.com/

Make sure you have set Firefox as your default browser, and then installation of the plugin it'll allow you to select the option for opening the MSN email link with Firefox.

Be very careful when installing Messenger Plus - Do not agree to installing the sponsor programs, a spyware nightmare.

Other way:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\ {0002DF01-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} \LocalServer32

change the current value to:

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

Problem here is, it will open Firefox, but just to the default home page. Perhaps set the default home to Hotmail and have Firefox remember your username and password?
