    I have my default browser set to a browser other than Internet Explorer, but
    when I open my hotmail inbox from msn messenger, it always uses IE. Is there
    a way to choose what browser I want to open my inbox?

  2. No, right now, you can't set it to use any browser other than IE.

  3. Greetings Rachel,

    You can ask anything here. Messenger itself will always take you to Internet Explorer when
    going to Hotmail and there's no way with Messenger to change this. However, a Messenger
    Plus! plugin known as StuffPlug-NG can get you this behavior.

    You can find out more about it here:

    You will first however need Messenger Plus to install this:
    Take note that if you do try this option, be sure to read through the installer ,as if you do
    not wish to install the sponsor program (ie. advertising) that goes along with Plus!, be sure
    *not* to chose that option during the installation.
