Default making firefox only browser

I got some problems with firefox. It is my default browser, but some programs still link to IE. Like MSN who links me to IE when I want to read my mails. Is there something you can do to prevent this en open such windows in firefox?

I don't have a sollution but another question

Can you get firefox to not block the pop ups in hotmail cuz' if I use firefox for sending mails in hotmail, it blocks the pop up that shows who from the list's inbox is full.

MSN is hard coded in windows so i guess that won't work.

Just bookmark the link in firefox and start there.

To read your hot-mails you need hotmail popper or equivalent

hotmail *sigh*

I use telenet for mails, but hotmail for junk (newsletters etc) and MSN. But sometimes someone sends me a mail to my hotmail adress :grum:

seems like we are out of luck already

3. How do I sign up? When can I get a Gmail account?

We're currently only offering Gmail as part of a preview release and limited test. We don't have details on when Gmail will be made more widely available, as that depends in part on the results of the test. If you're interested in receiving updates on Gmail, submit your email address using the form at the bottom of this page. And you can check out a sneak peek of Gmail here.
