    Greetings,

    This is actually by design as a security feature. Microsoft can only guarantee the transfer
    of your credentials to Internet Explorer, so it uses that exclusively.

    However, like most things in Messenger, this has been hacked around. To get what you want,
    you'll need to use Stuffplug. You can find StuffPlug here:
    http://www.stuffplug.com

    The exact option can be located after installing StuffPlug by opening up the main Messenger
    window, clicking the Stuffplug logo (the white circle), choosing Options, and choosing the
    "Open all URLs in default browser" checkmark, then clicking OK.
