G'day all,
My mate has a new puter.
It has Firefox/Thunderbird installed.

When he receives an email with a link, eg: freebeer@myplace.com he can't open it.
He can't open any URLs. He only runs AVG AntiVirus Free and has no other blocker.

He is less comp savvy than I, and has fiddled with a few "Options/Tools/Preferences/etc" settings and has the lowest security possible.

I'm no whiz kid with Computers but occasionally help out me mates with help from you friends.
Is this problem not uncommon? Any cure here?
Thanks for your interest.
Max.

Max, I doubt that Thunderbird has a very large user-base as most Firefox users stick with Outlook Express because, unlike IE, Outlook Express has few reasons to hate it so why change. What I'm saying is, you're unlikely to find much help here with an application that few people use. I suggest your mate switches to Outlook Express which is on every Windows computer, or visit the official Thunderbird forum on the mozilla website:

Pip,
Thanks for the good advice.
I run Firefox but stayed with Outlook as well.
I will pass the advice along and also the link in case he wishes to pursue Thunderbird.
Cheers,
Max.
