I am trying to set up Firefox as the Email client in W10 x64.  I have latest W10 x64 with all updates and latest FF x64.  I set the mailto: in Firefox to Gmail, and I set Firefox as the Email client in Default Apps, but when I use the Send to Email Recipient, either nothing happens, or I get the message saying there is no default email client.

Is there a fix or work around for this?

Thanks,

We have a bug that seems similar:


Where are you clicking "send to email recipient"?

And how are you setting Firefox as the default mail client? I don't see a way to do that on Windows 11.

Hi Mike,
    I was doing it through WordPerfect and in Windows Explorer.

Hi Mike,
    I was using Windows 10.  It showed up as an option in Default Apps.  I just tried it on my personal computer, and it shows up there in W10.
