How to set the email client of your choice on Firefox 3.0.3

You know how when you click “mail-to” links on the web it opens a default email client that usually isn’t the one you use? Like msn or mac email instead of Yahoo or Gmail? Well you can easily set Firefox (v3.0.3 – I’m not sure about earlier versions) to open the email client of your choice:

    For Mac:

1)  On the browser menu go to Firefox > Preferences. Click the Applications tab. The alphabetical “Content Type/Action” list appears.

The list under the "Applications" tab.

The list under "Applications" tab.

2) Go to mailto and select the email client you want from the drop-down list box.

    For Windows:

1)  On the browser menu go to Tools > Options. Click the Applications menu icon.
2)  (Same as for Mac.) Under the Content Type/Action list, go to mailto and choose the email client you want from the drop-down list box.

Now when you click an email address hyperlink – on craig’s list for example – your browser will open the email page you actually use!
