If I receive a link to a website on AOL instant messenger, or any other outside program, the link brings me to Internet explorer. Does anybody know how to make it so all links direct me to Mozilla Firefox?

Thanks,
Frit

MSN Messenger and other messenger applications may be "hard-coded" to open Internet Explorer, no matter which browser is set as the default.
Also, certain ISP's may provide connection software that automatically launches Internet Explorer.

For more information, have a look at the MozillaZine Article; Setting Your Default Browser.
