I solved it opening configuration to set default programs by protocol, and assigning firefox (in my case) to http and https protocols
To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 4 months agoSame. Doesn't change Outlook 2010 from opening IE. Bad advice.
To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 8 months agoAs others have stated, this procedure DOESN'T fix the issue of Explorer being the browser that opens from Outlook (for instance, when an email doesn't download properly and I choose "view it in a web browser") but also messes up all other associations. After following the instructions under "Changing The Default Program Setting In Your Computer", I had to redo associations for PDFs and for Email / Calendar, as I show in the image.
