Unable to open email links in webpages

As the title states I am unable to open email links directly from webpages. After I attempt to do so a Windows Internet Explorer box appears alerting me:
“could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed”

When I go to Default Programs, eM Client is listed and it says “This program has all its defaults” and when I click Choose Defaults all 5 boxes are checked

I am running:
Windows 7 Home Premium
Firefox
eM Client 6.0.19861.0
