When I click the solution download arrow the page always opens up in internet explorer. I have firefox set to my default explorer. And I've tried resetting it several times (in control panels, add/remove programs, custom, default browser). But secunia still tries to open the pages in internet explorer (which doesn't even work btw). And sometimes internet explorer won't even attempt to open it so I can't get the link at all. Is there any way to just copy/view the link?

# My default browser is not IE, but the links in the Secunia PSI keep opening in IE. Why is that?

Some links are set by the Secunia PSI to open in IE. This is because some Windows Update downloads and websites fail to resolve properly when opened by a browser other than IE.
