There is no way to use a different browser as we have specific functionality that works only with IE for this feature.
This was working previously for you though, right? Can you check with your IT people to see if they recently installed something that tightens the security (inside or outside IE) so that IE cannot open certain files? If so, they will need to adjust things for you. This is the first report from anyone about this issue so it would be good to know what the actual cause is so we can try to reproduce it here and see if there is a way for us to work around this.
I'm a little bit surprised that our software would be affected however. We don't actually embed the full IE browser, just the ActiveX component known as the “WebBrowser” control (this is used by a lot of Windows subsystems in addition to software like MSN Messenger and other things that want to render HTML inside their product), but I suppose WebBrowser may be affected in a similar way.
