    firefox being ie substitute

    I just installed Firefox (yay)
    and when you read this dont say theres a firefox thing in the forum (by fraz) because thats spamming someone elses thread, right?
    anyway, how do i set Firefox as the default internet thing, because say im on msn, and it says you have 6 new messages and i click it, it comes up as IE. how do i change this?
    and, IE isnt on the unistall thing list.

    When you insatll it a popup should appear that says "Set fire fox to your main browser".

    Yes, but MSN is owned by microsoft so it will force internet explorer to open and not firefox. Theres nothing you can do other then check your mail by going to your account via firefox and not the msn shortcuts. Its one of the reasons I switched to gmail.

    no, it should open your default browser- set firefox to default (control Panel) and it should work fine.

    Sorry, it's not actually in the control panel- go to add or remove programs and click the "program access and defaults" tab on the left. You should be abole to find a section for default web browser.

    That's not true. Everythig should open in Firefox, because I've done it:

    Just go to the control panel, then add or remove programs, then set program access and defaults, then choose whatever you want... custom or non-microsoft. They can drop down so you can see what programs to select.
