Windows 7: New Firefox search problems

I don't use WLM personally. Check this thread:

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...5-522c61b25049

Also support for WLM has ended:

Windows Essentials 2012 suite end of support on January 10th 2017

So you will need another email client soon anyway.

Well no. Just because support has ended doesn't mean the program stops working. To be honest I have never received support from Microsoft in my life for anything so it hardly makes and odds that they have ended support for Live Mail. Thanks for that link, but as you can see from my original post I have already tried this and it doesn't work.

Okay it's your data at risk and your choice. Of course you can keep using it until it breaks.

What happens to my already installed Windows Essentials 2012 applications?
Already installed applications will continue to work as they do today. There is an increased security risk associated with use of unsupported products past their end of support date.

Can I still use Windows Live Mail?
Yes. Though, some email service providers have moved to newer email protocols for improved security and reliability not supported by Windows Live Mail. These email service providers may no longer work.
End of support means Windows Live Mail will no longer receive software updates from Windows Update. These include security updates that can help protect your PC from harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software, which can steal your personal information. Windows Update will no longer install the latest software updates to improve the reliability of Windows Live Mail.

Which is what I plan to do and then I'll probably move away from Windows altogether because I'm sick of it. 'End of support means Windows Live Mail will no longer receive software updates from Windows Update.' Surely that's a bonus. Every time Windows come up with a new operating system in a matter of months it ends up like a patchwork quilt! So the fact that they are going to be installing one less 'update' is good news.
Listen I'm happy with Live Mail and all I want to do is try and get the images to work again in emails. I'm not interested in switching to some other email provider. When that time comes I have all my data backed up and as I say I'll probably switch to Mac or Linux.

Sorry for tuning in a bit late, but this MS website might help you with WLM. Now users will be required to switch over to Outlook.com for emails.

Windows Live Mail 2012 will not connect to Outlook.com - Outlook

Thanks. I'll check that out tomorrow.

Actually I just checked this and it has nothing to do with images not appearing in Live Mail. It's all about Outlook and Live Mail. I don't use Outlook.
