Can't click on link in Mac Mail to open Firefox

I use Firefox as my default browser on my iMac. Now (for the past month) when I click on a link in Mac Mail nothing happens. It works fine on my Mac-book. Does anyone know how to solve this problem? I should say I can click on a link if I set Safari or Google Chrome as my default browser. I just prefer Firefox. Thank you

  • Links in Mac Mail Are Unclickable

    I'm pretty sure that this is a recent problem, as I have definitely been able to click on links in the past. I haven't updated Mac Mail or Safari for quite some time now. I run Mail 2.1.3 and Safari 4.0.2 (I heard that 4.0.3 is completely bug-ridden and slows down computers to no end, so I avoided it) on Mac OS 10.4.11.
    Basically, suddenly stopped showing up as links in Mac Mail. I can't click them. I have to copy and paste them. Like I said, I haven't updated anything recently, nor have I changed any of my Mail preferences recently.
    Any ideas as to why this is suddenly happening?

    Not certain, but this can fix myriad Mail problems...
    Safe Boot from the HD, (holding Shift key down at bootup), it will try to repair your Disk Directory while the spinning radian is happening, so let it go, run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, then move these folder & file to the Desktop.
    Move this Folder to the Desktop...
    /Users/YourUserName/Library/Caches/Mail/
    Move this file to the Desktop...
    /Users/YourUserName/Library/Mail/Envelope Index
    Reset the Launch Services...

    If that doesn't do it and you can afford to redo all your Rules, try these & reboot...

  • When I advertise a link for potential customers, the link does not light up so that the customer can just click on link and be direct to my website. Why? What do i need to do in order for links to light up?

    When advertising, I put my link in so that potential customers can just click on link and be automatically directed to my website. My links are not lighting up so that they can be directed to my website. Why?

    Do you mean sending email?
    Just above the textarea that you use to enter the message text on the "Compose New Mail page" there is usually a button bar with buttons to add text formatting like Bold and Italic.<br />
    That toolbar may also have a button to turn a text link into a clickable hyperlink (look for a chain like button).<br />
    You can select the text and click that button to turn the link into a clickable hyperlink.<br />
    If you can't find the button then hover them all to check the tooltip of each (e.g. Insert hyperlink).

  • After the Firefox 6.0.2 update (up from 6.0), Firefox does not open a tab/page anymore when clicking on links in e-mail(have Thunderbird 6.0.2)

    Firefox no longer receives clicks on links in e-mail and others. No response at all. When I click on URL links in Windows, I receive "Windows cannot find http://<an address>. Make sure you typed the name correctly ...". When I click on e-mail links in Thunderbird, I do not get an error but nothing happens.

    This problem disappeared after a few days by itself but the last significant change in my PC prior to noticing normal Firefox link behaviour was MS Vista update KB2607712 & restart. This may or may not be the solution to the problem.

  • I click a link but it doesn't open. Instead I get a popup saying "Open the link in a new window," "Open link in a new tab," etc. How can I kill this popup or whatever it is forever?

    I click a link but it doesn’t open. Instead I get a popup saying “Open the link in a new window,” “Open link in a new tab,” etc. How can I kill this popup or whatever it is forever?

    That happens if the server sends the file as text/plain.
    You can see this if you open "Tools > Page Info > General": Content-Type: text/plain
    Files send this way will always open in a tab.

  • How can I get Mac mail to open winmail.dat attachments on lion 10.7.3

    How can I get Mac mail to open letter attachments winmail.dat??   (Lion 10.7.3) Any help appreciated...

    Sorry peterskine,
    it's true in part. There's more then one article on the subject "Recipients receive a winmail.dat attachment":
    http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/outlook-help/recipients-receive-a-winmail-dat- attachment-HA010153018.aspx?CTT=1
    The odd thing is that my colleague and me use the same release mountain lion and we received the same email from someone on Outlook2007. He received the mail with the attachment, whilst I saw a "Winmail.dat". It already happened to me on snow-leopard, some month ago. Up til today I don't know what the difference between our machines is.
    But it is interesting: the same OS, the same mail-clients (Apple Mail) and still different results.
    Note: on my machine it used to work properly. It just suddenly happened that I started to receive winmail.dat files in stead of proper attachments.
    When I have more time on hand, I cant try to find out why this happens.

  • When I open mac mail, it opens 1000 emails in separate windows. Emails that are not even in my account anymore. Can anyone help?

    When I open mac mail, it opens 1000 emails in separate windows. Emails that are not even in my account anymore. The system freezes and the only thing I can do is force quit. Can anyone help?

    You should post in the Mail forum area of whichever os is installed on your computer.

  • Hi, how do I download acrobat professional 7?  I can't find a link for Mac. I reinstalled CS2 (as my old G4 Powerbook needed reinstalling), but it didn't install instal Acrobat or Distiller.  Adobe don't seem to have any contact mechanism.

    Hi, how do I download the replace CS2 acrobat professional 7?  I can't find a link for Mac. I reinstalled CS2 from adobe (as my old G4 Powerbook needed reinstalling), but it didn't install instal Acrobat or Distiller.  Adobe don't seem to have any contact mechanism.
    I put my old acrobat back onto my machine (from a backup made before reformatting) but it wants the box serial number.  when I did that however, the replacement CS2 photoshop, etc, wouldn't work, so I had to install it again, but then, you guessed it - acrobat won't work again.

    Hello Alan,
    Acrobat 7 is older version. Refer below link for more information and how to download.
    Error: Activation Server Unavailable | CS2, Acrobat 7, Audition 3
    Adobe has made earlier versions available for customer's convenience.
    Hope all will go well !!

  • I clicked a link in another program that opened a link in Firefox, but only that opened, not any of my 50 saved tabs from last session. What can I do?

    So I clicked a link in a program that opened in Firefox. I had over 50 tabs from the course of a couple months I was saving, so "go back in your history" is not a practical option. I use the "Restore Tabs From Last Session" (or whatever the exact wording is) so I can just close and open and get all my tabs back. This time only this one link opened, nothing else did (like I remember it usually doing). How am I to restore that previous session? It's crucial for me to get all that stuff back, it drives me crazy when this happens (it's why I dropped Chrome and came here to Firefox, better memory management and less crashes).

    Restore your Previous Session
    *https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/restore-previous-session
    You can try to restore a previous version of the sessionstore.js or sessionstore.bak file. You need to rename the .bak file to .js to make Firefox see that session.
    *right-click: Properties > Previous Versions

    Go to Finder and select your user/home folder. With that Finder window as the front window, either select Finder/View/Show View options or go command - J.  When the View options opens, check ’Show Library Folder’. That should make your user library folder visible in your user/home folder.  Select Library. Then go to Preferences/com.apple.appstore.plist. Move the .plist to your desktop.
    Restart, open the application and test. If it works okay, delete the plist from the desktop.

  • After mistakenly clicking a link, my safari does not open automatically and unexpected webs open up.

    I am using MacBook Air with Yosemite OS. After mistakenly clicking a link, my safari does not open automatically and unexpected webs open up. Could you please give me suggestions on how to fix this problem? Thank you

    That's a bit vague, but you may have installed the "VSearch" trojan. Remove it as follows.
    Malware is always changing to get around the defenses against it. These instructions are valid as of now, as far as I know. They won't necessarily be valid in the future. Anyone finding this comment a few days or more after it was posted should look for more recent discussions or start a new one.
    Back up all data before proceeding.
    Step 1
    From the Safari menu bar, select
              Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Extensions
    Uninstall any extensions you don't know you need, including any that have the word "Spigot," "Trovi," or "Conduit" in the description. If in doubt, uninstall all extensions. Do the equivalent for the Firefox and Chrome browsers, if you use either of those.
    Reset the home page and default search engine in all the browsers, if it was changed.
    Step 2
    Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:
    /Library/LaunchAgents/com.vsearch.agent.plist
    Right-click or control-click the line and select
              Services ▹ Reveal in Finder (or just Reveal)
    from the contextual menu.* A folder should open with an item named "com.vsearch.agent.plist" selected. Drag the selected item to the Trash. You may be prompted for your administrator login password.
    Repeat with each of these lines:
    /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.vsearch.daemon.plist
    /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.vsearch.helper.plist
    Restart the computer and empty the Trash. Then delete the following items in the same way:
    /Library/Application Support/VSearch
    /System/Library/Frameworks/VSearch.framework
    ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/ConduitNPAPIPlugin.plugin
    Some of these items may be absent, in which case you'll get a message that the file can't be found. Skip that item and go on to the next one.
    The problem may have started when you downloaded and ran an application called "MPlayerX." That's the name of a legitimate free movie player, but the name is also used fraudulently to distribute VSearch. If there is an item with that name in the Applications folder, delete it, and if you wish, replace it with the genuine article from mplayerx.org.
    This trojan is often found on illegal websites that traffic in pirated content such as movies. If you, or anyone else who uses the computer, visit such sites and follow prompts to install software, you can expect more of the same, and worse, to follow. Never install any software that you downloaded from a bittorrent, or that was downloaded by someone else from an unknown source.
    In the Security & Privacy pane of System Preferences, select the General tab. The radio button marked Anywhere  should not be selected. If it is, click the lock icon to unlock the settings, then select one of the other buttons. After that, don't ignore a warning that you are about to run or install an application from an unknown developer.
    Then, still in System Preferences, open the App Store or Software Update pane and check the box marked
              Install system data files and security updates
    if it's not already checked.
    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination  command-C. In the Finder, select
              Go ▹ Go to Folder...
    from the menu bar and paste into the box that opens by pressing command-V. You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.
