When I click on a link on a website meant for e-mailing--using Windows 7 I no longer have the option of sending it through my AOL Desktop software as I used to in Windows XP. Is there an option in Firefox that will allow me to use the AOL Desktop software as my default e-mail program?

This didn't work. There is no option provided in Firefox for AOL--no add on either. And windows 7 does not let you use a browser based e-mail--even you change the registry--it will bring you to the AOL browser but won't open a "write" e-mail box and enter the name of the recipient automatically as it did in Windows XP by changing the option in internet options...someone must have a way of doing this...
