Firefox Compatibility
Does anyone know how to make Firefox use OE6_v2.1.1 correctly. I am using Windows 7 32-bit Home and Firefox v53. I have opened the FF options, applications and searched for the Outlook Express.exe file. If I choose the "Use Outlook Exprss (default)" as the mailto program, FF does nothing when I select a "contact us" or "email a link to this page". But then when I close FF there is a message box which says the default mail client has not been properly installed and when I close that box, about 18 IE windows open with a message stating "Navigation to the webpage was canceled".

I have uninstalled and reinstalled both Firefox and OE6_v2.1.1. I have verified that OE is the default email client in Windows 7 control panel. Also, if I choose the FF application for mailto from the OE folder (msimn.exe), then when I click on a "contact us", OE will open to the Inbox instead of the Create Mail window.
Does anyone have an answer for this? I have the same problem...
