Hi there, does anyone know how to do this when I am using windows vista and firefox?

go into "start menu", right click on the email icon, click on "internet properties", click on "programs" tab, and click on "set programs", it then should come up in a list, and select the one you want and click on "set this program as default"

hope that is of some use to you,
however i do not use yahoo mail, but i am assuming it is the same, as I have windows live, unless you have already tried this.

if it doesn't work then I am not sure sorry
