Links in Thunderbird

I have tried for what seems like forever to fix this problem.

I use the latest version of Thunderbird for e-mail and when ever I click on a link it goes to a temp file like this: file:///C:/DOCUME~1/Larry/LOCALS~1/Temp/nointerest.html

I want it to open in a regular browser window. (Firefox) but it only goes local.

I've tried resetting every option I can think of from Folder Options to arguments in Firefox.

Any ideas on how to get this to work? Every version of Thunderbird I have used does this.

Someone said this a built in feature to protect you from adverse software taking over your computer.

I'm a big boy and can do without this hassle.

If no one is able to provide you with an answer here then I would suggest that you post your problem in a Thunderbird forum http://forums.mozillazine.org/index...

Firefox.

Still won't go there through a link in Thunderbird though.

I appears this a 'feature" which I can understand, but yet there is no easy way to turn it off.

I'll learn to live with it.

But I resent the programmers feeling that they know better than I do.
