Firefox 2 + links in emails

I've just clicked a hypertext link in an e-mail and it didn't automatically open in Firefox 2 (as it did in previous versions).

I can't find a setting for this anywhere.

Start, Run, type

regsvr32 urlmon.dll

and click OK.

Still no joy.

Is anyone else having ths problem?

Go back to ff 1,5,0,7?

What? And admit defeat! Never....

I would see whether anyone has mentioned it on the Firefox forums but every time I try to go there I get "Server at..... is taking too long to respond" so they are obviously very busy at the moment.

Yes.

What did I do to cure it?

I have absolutely no idea. Rebooted a couple of times; but aside from that I didn't do a thing.

Went off for tea, came back just now and without thinking clicked on a link in an e-mail... and it opened :-) Tried it again with a different link from another e-mail... worked again.
