i am using right now MyIE2 the onlyu problem i had is that if someone send me a link thru Messenger 6, when i click it it opens in IE instead f MyIE2, how can i change that so it opens in MyIE2?

MyIE2 is currently my default browser it open any link i open with the exception of those via MSN, any ideas?

I believe that MSN launches IE rather than launching the link via the URL protocol as other apps do, therefore it's not possible. I may be wrong though.

could it because MyIE2 is a derivative of IE? whereas Firebird is its own entity. only thing i can think of.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
