Been looking for where I can change the setting in Outlook 2010 so that links embedded in email open my default browser (Firefox) rather than Outlook's default (IE). Google searches all seem to find answers for Office 2007 and earlier. I'm running Windows 7.

Outlook will open your default system browser.  You can check this by:

Goto Start and search for "Default Programs".  Open the Default Programs control panel.

Click Set program access and computer defaults.

Expand the custom section and select which browser you want as default.

Is your default browser set to Firefox for the OS?

In Windows 7 the starting point is DEFAULT PROGRAMS under All Programs.
