Windows 7: Links open in Word Doc not Browser

Links open in Word Doc not Browser

I'm using Windows Live Mail.

Something must have changed recently that I am unaware of, but here is my problem. All links in an email (such as open in MSWord and not my Firefox browser? It use to work just fine.

I check my 'extensions' and it show anything with a .com to use Firefox, but still opens MSWord. Is there any setting within WLM that needs to be adjusted?

Nevermind, I got it.

Firefox was not my default browser. Probably when I downloaded Opera to take a look at the it, somehow it became my default. Then when I removed Opera from the computer it just didn't know where to go.
