Verizon is my internet provider and also my email software. How can I set Verizon in Firefox Applications under Options/Tools? I don't use any other software.

Posted

Whenever I want to send a message when at a website, I am forced to use outlook or the other options listed in applications in Tools.

How do I get Verizon listed?

None of the suggestions apply to my inquiry. Verizon is my email provider. How do I get Verizon listed using the procedure suggested?

No, forget the "mailto > use other". Sorry !

Once you have a Mail Client(like Thunderbird) installed & configured as your default for Mail in the CUSTOM section of Set Program Access and Computer Defaults, you can click on a Send To or MailTo link on a webpage and a New Message window will open with your default email account's address (i.e. verizon.net).


thanks and sorry again

Sorry, this does not work for me. Custom set to default - Verizon does not appear as an option in Custom so no selection made just left as 'set to default'. Firefox: TOOLS/Options: Mail to: Verizon does not appear and when browsing Program Files Verizon does not appear as an option therefor 'Other' cannot be selected..

You need an e-mai client (like MS Outlook or Thunderbird) and then try the above steps, otherwise you cannot use Verizon webmail, only through an e-mail Client.
