emailing weblinks from Firefox using mail - need to pick alternate method
My new Windows 11 laptop forces me to use the "Mail" app to forward links by email using the "email a link to this page" utility feature in the Firefox toolbar Prior to this, my old laptop would just use Outlook which was quicker/better.
The multi-step method using Mail was cumbersome so in trying to designate Outlook as the sending vehicle over Mail, I designated a non-performing solution which is now preventing me from emailing links (and captured webpage info) at all. I would like to migrate back to Mail or find the correct choice for Outlook but the "email a link to this page" in the Firefox toolbar does not work now as a result of my poor choice.
Anyone know how to fix this? I have "restored factory defaults" and other on the toolbar features but does not help. This was apparently an unrevocable choice.

agreed it is a O/S feature but what IS a FireFox Browser implementation is the "choice" to pick a media to send the link with - when I made the wrong choice, it now no longer gives any choice, therefore locked into the non-performing path. I think it is the browser feature that no longer allows the O/S mail choice - see what I mean?
yes fabulous, that allowed me to restore the Mail option and remove my bad choice. Can you answer one more question: how do I select "Outlook" app to send the link rather than Mail. I don't see Outlook when I browse so I'm unsure of how to make that selection. Thanks so much for your help.
