Just a suggestion :

Start > Default Programs > Set Your Default Programs > left column, click Firefox .......
Does it say " this program has all its default " ?
If no, click Choose Defaults for this P{rogram > put a checkmark on all entries under the list > click Save when done.

Yes, it has all his default. I don't know why this could interfere in viewing my e-mails... Can you explain why this could have interfered?

@JaidynM I can see all my e-mail in my inbox but clicking on any of them... it does absolutely nothing...

Working fine here too. Try running it without addons or reset to defaults?

To explain in normal English...... a link is like a road map which shows the path to the source ( the item you want to view ).
This job belongs to the browser.
When you right click at the link and click Open, you are asking your browser to follow the road map, locate and reveal the item for you to see.
If the browser does not have all its defaults, it will not be able find the source, and you will not be able to see what is in the link.
I am taking the liberty to simplify the subject.

Running in Safe Mode kinda does it. So, an addon is the problem heh... Well, then, let's find it.

EDIT

It's AdBlock... Darn. Well, let's find what it blocks then green-light it.

EDIT 2

Adblock had blocked a certain script and well, it crapped up everything.
Well, consider the problem solved!

Lebon which list are you using for ABP? I'm using Easylist and I don't have any issues. List your addons .. could be a conflict. I remember WOT giving me a horrid time with facebook and all the while I thought it was FF!

You don't need the Microsoft .Net Framework Assistant 1.2.1. Here's how to remove if you want:
