WLM cannot open url links in Mozilla

Hi,
Can anyone help please.
I just migrated over to Win7 HP, (from Vista) & of course WLM & all works well really except that I get an error msg from WLM saying that ....

"There was a problem sending the Command to the Program"
along with the usual #'Bong' sound!!!

In theory it should open up Mozilla, (also recently migrated from Avant), but as such I have to cut & paste the link.... .

I loved Vista really & 7 seems a tad better so far.

Any thoughts or advice ... thanks

Hello, Welcome to SF,

Follow this link Default Programs - Associate a File Type or Protocol and make sure HTTP, HTTPS are associated with Mozilla Firefox in Default Programs then try to open the link and see what happens.

Hope this helps,

Many thanks Cap'n Sparrow

I think I cracked it by 1stly making IE8 as the default then reverting the default back to Mozilla and so far all's working well.
