Steps to reproduce:

I received a html address in Outlook, clicked to open it if FF7


Actual results:

Expected results:

Open the invoked page as it did with FF3 & 4  (problem started after migrating to FF6)
Same result whatever link type (html or not)

What do you mean with "html address" ?
Do you mean a http:// link, a file:// link or a html file (attachment) ?

It's an URL with an .html (.htm) link, as opposed to php address, etc

FYI I am on W7 with Office 2003
The same configuration with IE or Chrome works fine
I'm using Outlook 2010 and opening http:// links works fine for me in Firefox.

soufflet would it be possible to drag and drop any email which reproduces the problem to your desktop, then zip it and attach to this ticket?

Just discovered it now works OK with the fix published this week (Tuesday?)
the pb was with Outlook 2003, still extensively used in the Corp world
glad I don't have to switch to another browser :)
