Why can't I open links in my e-mails on Evolution?


So, I get e-mails from both POP3 and IMAP servers on my Evolution service but what bugs me is that I cannot open any links within the e-mails on a browser window when I click on them (like would normally happen when I go to my accounts individually on the internet).

Is it because I use Firefox or a bug in Evolution?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I also see that right-mouse-click then "Copy Link Location" also fails to copy the link location into whatever buffer the mouse stores this in. The previous contents remain.

I'm running Fedora 14.the GUI's pretty much like ubuntu.

system->Preferences->preferred application ,and then choose FireFox to open your links.
