    How to Subdue 'Locate Link Browser' window? (Outlo

    I have a new computer with the XP Pro operating system and Office 2000. Every time I click a URL in an Outlook email message, besides launching my browser (Mozilla FireFox) and going to the site (which or course it is supposed to do), it opens something called the "Locate Link Browser". This window sits under the browser on top of Outlook and I can't do anything else in Outlook until I cancel or close it.

    The very first time I clicked a link in Outlook on this new computer I was not actually online, so I figured that was why it opened - since it couldn't find the link on the Internet. But it persists with this behavior regardless of whether or not the browser succeeds in finding the URL online.

    Any ideas how to subdue this annoyance?

    Thank you! That did the trick (I had done a search on the forum here for Locate Link and it said it didn't find anything. Hmmm. I must have mistyped it!)

    Oh - just noticed that thread wasn't in the Outlook forum - it was other browsers and email clients or something like that.

    Thanks again,
