Currently, when I click on a link in any e-mail message, Outlook
autmoatically opens Internet Explorer. Instead, I want the links to open
Mozilla Firefox.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Edit the "URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol" and "URL:HyperText Transfer
Protocol with Privacy" file types to open with the browser you choose.

I hoped to get similar result, but when I go to Control Panel/Folder Options
I don't see where to change file type like instructions said to do.

Select the "URL:HyperText Markup Language" file type. Click Advanced.
Select the "open" action and click Edit. See if the references there are
correct.
