Open the Apple Mail application and go to Preferences > General.
The line asking for your choice of Default Mail Reader probably say "Mail 2.1" or similar.
Using the dropdown box, choose Other. Navigate to your web browser and select it.

Close Preferences and you are done.

Let us know if that is what you wanted
