TenFourFox 17.0.2


I would like to press 'Email Link' in the 'File' menu and have the current url appear in gmail, the browser email program I use. The email link opens in Apple Mail, the program I used to use.

How do I switch over?

    This has to do with the default E-mail program setting; by default Firefox (and therefore TenFourFox) assumes your E-mail is not browser based and sends things to whatever that mailer is, which is by default.

    To change this, go to Preferences, and click Applications. Scroll down to "mailto". Click "Use Mail" and a dropdown will appear, from which you can select Gmail.
