When a website, in my case a Fantasy Football site, has an option to send a mass email to all members, that function does not work for me in Firefox. How do I set Firefox to allow for such mass emails sent via another site?

Chosen solution

Firefox is set up to use Gmail or Yahoo if you have those accounts. This article describes the steps: Change the program used to open email links.

If you have a Hotmail/Outlook.com account, check out this thread: How to set Hotmail as default mailto simply, no gobbildy-gook.

If you are using a different mail site, some research might be required first. A volunteer here might be able to help, depending on the site.
