They are not doing this now with the latest push of Mozilla. Cutting and pasting works correctly, but what a pain! The links just open Mozilla to my Home page URL. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open Outlook 2.Open e-mail with Link 3.Click on link 4.Mozilla opens to Home page URL (only). Expected Results: Open in correct URL / Link. Mozilla has always done this before.
I got this one too. For me, it happened after I upgraded. The upgrade did not go well, and Firefox reported that it was going to download the update again. However, after the update, everything worked fine, but when I clicked on a link from an Outlook email, it would not work. Instead it came up with a File dialog that said "Locate Link" in its title. however that didn't work. I looked up the issue in MS's site and it said I need to fix the URL:hyperlink association. when i looked in there, I saw this: rundll32.exe shdocvw.dll,OpenURL %l MS said it should point to iexplore.exe No luck with that, so I reinstalled. Everything works now.
