Mail link permission denied


When clicking on a hyperlink in emails, I get this message:
Could not open the file
Failed to execute child process "/home/trien27*/firefox/firefox (Permission denied)"

*trien27 is the name I use on this site, not what I use on my computer.

I now know the reason why I couldn't click on links: I just found out, I need to add another /firefox to the end of "/home/trien27*/firefox/firefox" for the permission denial to disappear, but the problem is: I don't know where to go to solve this problem. I have the solution, but now I need to know where to go to solve this problem.

Thanks for the help.

What email client are you using? The answer might likely depend on that.
