Here’s How to Make URL Links in Outlook Open with Firefox

On my system – Windows XP SP2, when I clicked on a link in Outlook 2007 the link would open in IE which is not my default browser – Firefox is. The links would open in IE even if Firefox was open.

I was able to tweak my system as listed here to have the links open in Firefox:

1. Fire up My Computer
2. On the menu go to Tools -> Folder Options
3. Go to the File Types tab.
4. Find Extension: “(NONE)” File Type: “Internet Shortcut” and click on it once to highlight it.
5. Go to the Advanced button.
6. In the Actions: box click open to highlight it.
7. Click the Edit button.
8. In the Application used to perform action: box browse to your firefox.exe location and click on firefox.exe and then click on open.
9. In the Application used to perform this action: it should read: ” your path \Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -url “%1”
10. Click OK.
11. Find Extension: “(NONE)” File Type: “URL: HyperText Transfer Protocol with Privacy” and repeat the steps.
12. Also see if you have this Extension: “URL” File Type: “Internet Shortcut” and repeat the steps here too.

Links clicked on in Outlook now open in Firefox for me.

Thomas Jefferson Quotes

“The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.”

“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and will never be.”

“A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.”

Inspirational Song Lyrics: “When We See Christ”

When We See Christ
(It will be worth it all)

Oft times the day seems long, our trials hard to bear,
We’re tempted to complain, to murmur and despair;
But Christ will soon appear to catch His Bride away,
All tears forever over in God’s eternal day.

Sometimes the sky looks dark with not a ray of light,
We’re tossed and driven on , no human help in sight;
But there is one in heav’n who knows our deepest care,
Let Jesus solve your problem – just go to Him in pray’r.

Life’s day will soon be o’er, all storms forever past,
We’ll cross the great divide, to glory, safe at last;
We’ll share the joys of heav’n – a harp, a home, a crown,
The tempter will be banished, we’ll lay our burden down.

It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
Life’s trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
So bravely run the race till we see Christ.

Firefox Browser

For years I have been advocating the use of Maxthon as the browser with the most features and security. Although I have had Firefox installed for these many years I have really never used. Recently I installed Firefox 2.x and I have to say, I am switching browsers!

I will make a list of all the Extensions I have installed asap for those who may be interested.

My old combination of Maxthon & Proxomitron was very nice as I could rewrite pages with Proxomitron as I wanted them. Problem is, Proxomitron is complex and breaks many pages. Firefox with Adblock Plus extension IS AWSOME! and it is very easy to configure.

Looks nice with a maple wood theme:

I am sold….

More on this later…. off to bed as I just realized it is 2:41am – arg!
