Default OE 6 and mozilla firefox

Im running windows XP home with OE 6 as my email client and Mozilla firefox as my browser.

Now to my question:

Whenever i click on a link sent to me by a friend, instead of opening in a new browser window, the link opens 'My Documents' folder instead. can anyone tell me why its doing this and how to fix it?
