This is just a short tip for all users of twhirl who are on Windows Vista. If clicking a link in twhirl opens Internet Explorer, although ou did not configure it as your default browser, the following workaround from Adobe might help.

Go to Start > Default Programs > Set Program Access and Computer Defaults, expand Custom, select the radio button next to the application you want to set as the system-wide default browser (for example, Mozilla Firefox) and apply the setting.

There’s no guarantee that this will work, but you should give it a try.
