Trying to keep numbers straight, before I get completely confused. There is no NS8.2, but only 8.1 Browser. That can be selected as default browser, since there is no mail in it. however, the default mail can be selected independently of the browser settings, from NS7.1 preferences|Mail and News| select it default for mail.
But since NS7.1 is both browser and mail, a link in NS7.1 will not open NS8.1, but rather in itself. This issue came up very early in the development of NS8.x, and it showed that it could be tied to a standalone mail client, like Mozilla Thunderbird, and behave properly ( some people may disagree, but you cannot use NS8.x as a proper default browser, and also use NS7.x as mail client).
Sorry I had a typo, but my reply is like Don's, after correcting it. You have to select, at least, Mail, to be your default.
