Read Mail button on the toolbar doesn't open my default mail program

I've just reinstalled Firefox 17.0.1 (and everything else) following a crash. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, with Windows Mail (not Live Mail) set as the default email program and I've added a Read Mail button to the Firefox toolbar: all this is exactly as it was before the crash. Windows Mail is selected in Tools/Options/Applications/mailto, and also runs perfectly from its desktop icon.

However, clicking on Read Mail doesn't open Windows Mail as it used to.

I get the message "The application could not be found, please use Toolbar Buttons's options window to correct this". I'm not clear on what it is I'm being directed to do. What and where is the "Toolbar Buttons's options window"?

Many thanks.
