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.
