Hey guys,

On the majority of applications, such as Teamspeak, IRC, Outlook Express, whenever I click a link, they open up MyIE2. I stopped using that browser and began using Mozilla Firefox. I have that set as my default browser, but I don't want to completely disable MyIE2 either... how can I set it that whenever I click a link no matter the program, that only Firefox opens up?

I don't know a quick way if you've already set it as the default. I've had to go through before into Windows Explorer->Tools->Folder Options->File Types and changed them to "open with" the browser I wanted. It's sloppy but it worked.

See, when you go to the file types, everything is already set to be opened by Firefox, html, htm etc... so that isn't it. Just some programs, Teamspeak, AIM, IRC... they always open up MyIE2, and there's got to be some registry tweaks or something to disable that. :(

Eh, well AIM is opening links in Mozilla, that's a plus. Teamspeak however is still opening up links in MyIE2, I'm going to see what mIRC does.

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
