You have checked that FF is still the default browser, I assume (e.g. usign
Start -> Run then putting something like http://www.mozilla.org)?

FF is definitley the default browser. The problem only occurs if clicking links
in  HTML emails in Outlook (text links appear to work ok). If I set IE7 as
default browser, fault doesn't occur.
Excuse if I misunderstand the problem, but have you set HTTP to Firefox and
unchecked "Use DDE" in Folder Options > File Types?

If FF is te default browser, and works for other programs, etc. then this must
be Outlook, I guess.  As has been pointed out in other bugs, just because FF is
set as the default browser doesn't mean apps will respect that - some are
hard-wired for a certain action.  Could this be a problem with IE7?
Reporter, do you still see this problem with Firefox 2.0? If not, can you please close this bug WORKSFORME. Thanks!
