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.

Still no joy.

Is anyone else having ths problem?

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.
