The Locate Link Browser dialog box appears when a Microsoft Internet browser returns an error value after it is started by Outlook 2003.
Also says update to later version browser than NN6.2 and to XP - I think there is something being left unsaid by MS if still occuring in Firefox! Outlook/IE having link "ownership" conflicts with others - strange but true!
Open "Folder Options"
Look at every: "URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol" listed.
URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol
URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol with Privacy
edit to ensure is listed as "open" and is pointed at browser you want to use.
If they are all open and all point to your browser (Moz) I am at a loss.
Open Internet Explorer
Tools : Internet Options : Programs Tab
Select (if not already) Outlook in the email section
Open the Locate Link Browser window
Browse to select the browser executable you want to use as default browser.
If this is the Outlook problem it will likely be a similar problem with Office.
And also for URL:Hyper Text Transfer Protocol with Privacy.
But I have no idea at all what DDE means, so do it at your own risk. There was just sth about IE in the DDE settings that made me suspicious :o) - and it worked.
Oh, and I just found out that, if you re-check DDE later, the settings of it have changed to sth with "Firefox" instead of "IE", and the Locate-Link-Broser-Window stays away even if it is checked.
One additional detail:
After unchecking the DDE box, click OK twice just to get back to the "folder options" window. At this point if you go into "advanced" and "edit" again you'll see the DDE box is already checked again but the association has been changed to Firefox.
Yes, and it works perfectly. Search through them at [update.mozilla.org...]
I installed it and it's the same.
Link Browser dialog was popping up in Outlook 2003. I located Firefox in the Link Browser and selected it.
Now when I click a link in Outlook, TWO Firefox (0.91) browsers open -- one with the target site, the other is blank. I tried the DDE trick, but that didn't change anything.
Anyone have any ideas about how I might stop the "blank" browswer from opening?
I had to go at it with a few more steps (downloaded Mozilla 0.9.3 today): Mozilla browser - Tools - Options - Downloads - Show Folder - Tools and then I was able to follow your directions.
Appreciate your help!
