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)?

  • It seems to only be outlook. Thought a system restore fixes it. But that's a heavy move...
