    The only problem I have had with FireFox is that if you have an embedded e-mail on a web page you want to mail, clicking on it will not bring up your e-mail program as it does in IE. It will show the address at the bottom of the page you are not but not link directly with your e-mail program.
    there's a way to configure it to do what you want.
    I know because if i click on an email address it opens Outlook. (crap program btw)
    however I don't use it, so it doesn't matter
    You used to be able to do that but when the update to FireFox 3 came along, it won't allow me to do it. At least I can't figure it out.
    Just tried it with version 3.0.5 and it opened outlook for me when i clicked on an email address.
    Perhaps you have to set outlook or whatever you use as a default mail manager?
    I'm using MSN and I can't seem to get it to work. I'll keep trying. Thanks!
    what mail client do you use?

    oh, you mean you want it to open up hotmail?
    Through the website?
    I've never tried that, i thought you meant open up an external program that handles email.

    I use FF for PP.O & have also switched from MSN & (IE) for eBay. The response time is faster with FF.
