Is there a way to set the default Web Browser in OS X to firefox. I want to click on the URL's in Mail App. and have it open the URL's in FireFox.
Is it possible to do this?

many ways, though I only know one . . .

Freeware utility MisFox sets app defaults for the various file types and services.

thx

danke, thx for the suggestion on fsfox. It helped me set other stuff as well. I prefer using mplayer X as opposed to quicktime, since it is more compatible. and the app let me do that. That really helped with some other problems
