Hello there:
does anyone know how to make hotmail the default email option in mozilla firefox?
i've managed to change it with internet explorer thru "internet options" but firefox doesn't give me the same options.

If there is an option it will be somewhere in the advanced config.

Open a new tab and put "about:config" without quotes in the address bar. Be careful though, you can irreparably damage FF if you do the wrong thing in there...

I don't think Firefox has a default email address. It uses the computers default (meaning Windows default).

I found this reference in the Firefox help files:

Send Link...

Opens an email composition window using your computer's default email program so you can send a message with a link to the current page.
