links in emails won't open browser

For some strange reason now when I click on a link in an email my browser will not open, nothing happens, but this is only on my home computer. Using my portable Thunderbird here at work it works fine, anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

STanzman

Ahh, I'll check the .html

Ahh, I'll check the .html file extension association at home and see if that is the problem. But I can open an html file from my desktop at home and it works.

not file association, url protocol handler

Hi,

links aren't handled as file associations, but as URLs, and passed to the appropriate URL Protocol handler. A handy tool for inspecting what is set up on your PC is at http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/url_protocol_view.html - it isn't open source, but it is freeware.

Hope that helps
