Even though you are using FF as your default browser, you still have to keep IE and keep it patched. There are several reasons that require this:]
1. MS update site only works (surprise) with MS Internet Explorer.
2. Some sites important to you may not be web standard compliant, and you must use IE (look for "optimised for IE" on their page, a dead giveaway).
3. IE is a part of the Windows Operating System, and consequently cannot be deleted.
There is a handy extension for FF that allows you to click on a link or a page and open it in IE, for those times you are forced to use it.
I am unsure if FF fixed your Email problem or not, from what you wrote. If not, reply and someone can help you with that. Are you, for example, talking about using a POP account or using Yahoo web-mail?
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
