yahoo opens with Internet Explorer instead of Avant

Post by sd7382 » Sun Oct 03, 2010 9:06 pm

When I click on a link to email someone yahoo opens with Internet Explorer instead of with Avant even though on the Avant browser options I have it set to open with other programs which i then typed in Yahoo! Mail. How do I set yahoo mail to open with Avant instead of Internet Explorer. Please reply to this post when you get it and let me know because lots of times I post important messages on forums and no one ever answers me with a reply which makes my issue not get resolved and this is very important.

Yahoo Mail is already set as the default in Internet options but it still doesn't open with Avant.

IE opens as well from MSN Messenger, from PDF995 and with several popup pages.

Yahoo Mail is already set as the default email program but it opens in Internet Explorere and not in Avant. The article in help section just mentions about firefox and internet explorer and it does not tell me how to get yahoo mail to open in Avant.

Could you show me the page where you click inside to open yahoo? I want to have a test.

Is the link to Yahoo from a page or a third application?

Try this (in Avant): Tools> Avant Browser Options> Email Program> Web Mail: http://mail.yahoo.com.

Then, do this: Right-click Avant's window bar (but not on a tab)> Customize Buttons> Standard Buttons> Check the box next to Mail.

Now, if you click that button, it should use Avant to bring you to http://mail.yahoo.com. Please let me know if this doesn't work.

It's the bar that holds the tabs.

I did check the box next to mail in standard buttons on the customize buttons on the Avant Window bar and no it didn't work. Yahoo still opens up with Internet Explorer and not Avant.

I tested clicking Mail button did open yahoo mail inside Avant. Did the problem ever happen to other links as well? Like clicking a link made IE started and the page was opened in IE?

If you choose to e-mail via floating toolbar you must have an e-mail program like outlook installed.
