I know this isn't a new problem as I've found lots about it in the Internet but I haven't found anything that will fix it! This problem only started for me when I updated to Firefox36, until then everything was working perfectly, but as I've seen references to the problem going back to 2007 that may be a red herring.
I'm using Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit on an HP ProBook. When I click on a mailto link in a web page I have a Windows Internet Explorer window open saying "Could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed".
I was clicking the link in Firefox, Firefox is my default browser, The Bat is set as my default program for handling mailto commands and everything was in 100% working order until I updated to v36.
On another computer also running Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit with Firefox 36.0.1 this problem does not occur! Clicking on a mailto in that works just as it should. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, but it made no difference - the problem wouldn't go away.
It's driving me barmy! ;-)
