Opening hyperlinks in Outlook after updating Firefox to 66.0.1

I cannot open any hyperlinks in my Outlook emails since I updated Firefox to 66.0.1.

I've done everything that has been recommended from changing my default browser to trying to fiddle around with Firefox.  Nothing works.  My Outlook is kinda old:  2007.  I haven't tried to uninstall and reinstall it because it's not obvious from the CD Rom discs how to reinstall just one program.  Firefox says they fixed that problem back at Firefox 58; guess what?  NO.  Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Does anything happen when you click on a link?

Yes, I got the message:  "This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.  Please contact your system administrator."  Thanks for any help.

Are you using the Admin account on the computer? Try changing your default browser to Explorer or edge and make sure a page will open. Then switch back to firefox. Try opening another link. Let me know what happens.
