Re: How to Make Firefox 3 default mailto for Hotmail

Here's how to change the e-mail program used by Firefox :
Firefox normally uses your operating system's default mail program to send an e-mail message. This article explains how you can change the program that is launched when you click on
  • Send link... from the File menu
  • Send link... from the context (right-clickCtrl+click) menu in Firefox
  • A "mailto" or e-mail link on a web page (e.g., examples@examples.net)

More tips here.

Re: How to Make Firefox 3 default mailto for Hotmail

If you want to make Firefox 3 default mailto for Hotmail then in firefox 3, click on Tools > Options > Applications. Then, type "mailto", without the quotes, into the search box. Click on the line that appears below and choose whatever mail handler you want.

TIP: Use Outlook Express for Hotmail (in XP) or Windows Mail (in Vista) or download Windows Live Mail.

There is a setting in Firefox 3 which is altogether different from Firefox 2 version of browser, by default, Firefox (and Thunderbird) don't have what you need to open links in one to the other.
