Do you have Firefox installed in the default location? If it is not try uninstalling firefox and reinstall into the default location, ie C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\. I had the same problem , but I had Firefox installed at D:\Programs\Firefox. Once installed into the default location my html link problem was gone. Also adding in the Protocol-handlers did not resolve the problem due. user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.ftp","/path/to/firefox"); user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.http","/Path/to/firefox"); user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.https","/Path/to/firefox");
