OE not working with Firefox
OE6 works fine as a stand alone but when I try to use it as the default application in FF mailto, it does not work correctly. I am using Windows 7 32-bit and FF is my default browser. I have verified that OE6 is the default email client in Windows default programs. I have uninstalled both OE6 and FF, and then reinstalled both again. Verified OE6 as default mailto in FF, and Window default email client once again.

When using Firefox and clicking on "Email a link to this page", OE6 opens to my Inbox instead of the compose new message window. When I click on a link in FF to "Contact Us" (mailto: runasxp@gmail.com), again OE6 opens to my Inbox instead of the compose new message window. Reinstalling oe6_v2.1.1.exe has NOT corrected the problem.

This feature is one I use often in Firefox. It worked fine with Windows XP and the original OE so I believe there is an issue in the code of the runasxp program. Rafail has suggested I verify OE as being the default email client, which I have done. He also suggested reinstalling oe6_v2.1.1.exe, which I have also done several times. The issue still exists. Am I the only user experiencing this issue?

RE: OE not working with Firefox
Geo, this topic already exists.
As already discusses, if you have issues when firefex updated, try reinstalling oe and make it default again. There is nothing else that i can help here.
Maby there is a conflic with some other program on your side, maby. On my tests reinstalling and making oe default again solves this issue.

RE: OE not working with Firefox
This is a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit. I download the latest version of Firefox and then your OE6_v2.1.1.
As I have stated, I have verified several times that OE is the default email client. I have reinstalled OE several times to fix the issue and nothing has worked. I don't know what else to do either. I thought that maybe some other users had this issue and would post, but no one has posted. I created a new thread as my thought was that it would get more attention. Thank you anyway ;-(
