With Yahoo Messenger 8 installed, any time I want to open anything through messenger that will appear in a browser, it comes up with a strange URL address that doesn't work. Some examples would be if I get a message telling me I've received email and click on the link, messenger opens the IE browser to a page that doesn't exist. Or if I click on Yahoo Msgr Help, same thing. The kind of URL that appears looks like this:


You can see that some strange characters (like "%22") are being inserted, and it looks like there might be some kind of cookies issue going on. I can't figure out how to fix it.

Another odd thing is that Yahoo Messenger chooses to open everything in IE despite the fact I have Firefox as my default program to open webpages.

Any help with this one would be appreciated.
