On occasion, I come across a web page that offers to send an email if you click on the link eg, I was researching regulations for personal care homes in GA and there was an option to send an email to the administrators to ask them for more information.

So, I click on the link and rather than getting the email address, firefox goes to open the "mail" application on my mac.

Well, I never use that application because it is too slow and bulky. I can't use basic text options like bolding or italics and such. Not to mention, it takes forever to load.

I use GMX for mail and it is accessed through Firefox. It is not an application that "lives" on my computer.

How can I get Firefox to respond to these email buttons on websites by going to GMX?

Thanks, Charles

Firefox/Mozilla doesn't send out email notifications. That comes from sites your registered to or requested emails from. And firefox isn't a email program it's just a Browser. What your talking about seems to be from the site your using not something firefox can control.
