Links in emails in Windows Live Mail don't work - generate error message
Posted on 2010-11-13
System is running Windows 7 Home Premium, Firefox 3.6.12, and Windows Live Mail (not the 2011 version).
When I click on any hyperlinks in emails, the following message is generated: This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.
I can copy and paste the links into the Firefox address bar and I get to the webpage, so the links are valid. I don't really see a place in Default Programs that applies to this problem, but I am not sure how to correct this. (I don't want to "upgrade" to the new version of WinLiveMail.)
All help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
