    When ever I click a mailto: link on a webpage (with Firfox, doesn't happen with Chrome) it starts opening endless mailto: pages about every second till I stop it with Ctrl+Alt+Delete. Closing the browser does not stop it, it just opens a new browser and keeps on opening pages.

    Any idea what this is, is it a virus, malware? I have run Kaspersky internet security and it dis not help.

    Any ideas on how to stop this BS?

    That fixed it. it was set to outlook and I changed it to Gmail. Don't know why Outlook was causing this as it wasn't set to Firefox, but doesn't matter, problem solved.

    Thanks!
