I have Firefox set up to be my default browser,it works fine except whenever I use Yahoo messenger...it always opens IE by default.
I want to stop IE from opening up any more.Where are the settings that will allow me to do this ...Thanks!

Try this. Click on start, click on "set program access and default", click on "custom".

select "use my current web browser" Put a check in both boxes on the right side to allow access to both IE and Firefox.

Under choose a default instant messenger choose "use my current instant messenger"

EDIT: That should do the trick. If not, change your selection from "use my current web browser" to "Mozilla Firefox"
