sometimes when I click a link, say in an e-mail, IE opens instead of Firefox.

Can someone advise me how I set my PC so that Firefox is always used please.

I've managed to sort it on my Vista laptop but don't know how to do it with XP.

# Firefox 1.5: " "Tools -> Options -> General -> Default Browser -> Check Now"
# Firefox 2: " Tools -> Options -> Main / System Defaults -> (checkmark) Always check to see if Firefox is the default browser on startup -> Check Now"
# Firefox 3: " Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> General / System Defaults -> (checkmark) Always check to see if Firefox is the default browser on startup -> Check Now"

shows all versions of Firefox...

You could also configure Firefox as the Default browser via Start>Set Program Access and Defaults>Custom.
