In Internet Explorer:

  1. Click the Tools menu item at the top.
  2. Click Internet Options. You should be on the General tab.
  3. Top section is called Home Page. Click Use current.
  4. Click ok at the bottom. You are done!

In Firefox:

  1. Click the Tools menu item at the top.
  2. Click Options. You should be on the General tab.

Firefox is set as my default, I verified and even unchecked saved and went back in to set as default again, but every time I click a link in Outlook IE opens. This used to work just fine but I had to recently open IE and as always new problems arise. IE is the villain in this case which happens a lot and I avoid opening it like the plague. Any advice would be much appreciated.

When I try to set the default to IE, using the steps above [check the default box in IE/tools/prog], it soon disappears-and I think FF is the villain…Help

Did you double check if the other browsers have “Set as default browser” checked?

Maybe when you changed the default browser to IE, your change didn’t over ride the settings in the other browsers for some reason?
