Hello, I would like to be able to change the default browser that
Messenger 7.0777 opens to perform its actions, such as when viewing a
user’s myspace from their contact card, etc.

Why? Because I use Firefox as my default browser (as everyone should)
and avoid IE all-together.

If this voids any terms of use please email me the procedure at:
okappa shaw com

Greetings,

Messenger will automatically use your default browser for links, but will not use it for
Hotmail, Spaces, are anything MSN specific which uses some features that FireFox doesn't have
(like the MSN Photo ActiveX control for instance).

You cannot change this behavior for Spaces.
