Hello recently I got this pop-up dialog box asking me to browse for a browser for html links in my outlook emails.

So I navigated and selected Internet Explorer. then I clicked on the HTML links in my emails and it just opens up my homepage in IE instead of the link I just clicked.

So I tried the registry fix.... and it works... it allows me to open the links with FireFox. But now...

Internet Explorer and Firefox open when I click any link in an e-mail with outlook!

Does anyone know how to solve this problem.

What is set as your default web browser? What happens if you click on links in other software (including other MSOffice programs)? – DMA57361 Jun 22 '10 at 17:38
It seems to only be outlook. Thought a system restore fixes it. But that's a heavy move... – tcables Jun 22 '10 at 17:55

System restore fixed it.
