How to make "Get Mail" icon to open my email client

more options

I have set up Firefox as my new go-to web browser with bing as home page. I have access to Outlook.com for my email from my ISP. There is a link to Outlook.com at the top of the bing home page, which works fine. I want to be able to go straight to Microsoft Outlook 2010 from the "Get Mail" icon in the Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar. When I click on this icon it gives me 3 options...Read Mail, New Message, & Options. When I click on Read Mail, nothing happens. When I click on New Message, I get a blank MS Outlook 2010 page to type a new email, so that part works OK. Options asks for the mail path but I'm not sure what I am looking for. This function worked ok in IE10. There was a icon of a letter that I clicked on that would take me direct to MS Outlook 2010.

Is there a way to make the Bookmarks Toolbar Add-on go to MS Outlook 2010 emails...? Hope I have explained it ok

I suspect that you would have more luck with a bookmark for that site on your bookmarks toolbar.

Possibly. But doesn't defeat the purpose of a Firefox Add-on...? Especially since only 2 of the options in the email Add-on work. Hmmmm...anybody else got any ideas...?

What is the exact name of that add-on?

Any chance this - http://webdesigns.ms11.net/getmail.html - is what you are using?
