    Yahoo messenger email notification


    Hi, I have installed firefox and have it set as my default browser but when I get an email notification from yahoo messenger and click on it to open my mail it opens IE. Anyone else have this bug? Which would need an update to fix it Yahoo or Windows?

    I had a similar problem with a couple of regular web sites I had put on the start page when I was using IE prior to installing Firefox.

    I had to unpin the web sites from the start menu, visit them again using Firefox and then pin them back on. When I click or hit them now they now open in Firefox.

    I hope this was of help and that it applies also the Yahoo Messenger
