[FYI] Firefox set to default browser

Running Firefox normally if you select to set as default it won't because UAC won't allow registry changes without Admin power. The registry changes get redirected to program data which is only temporary.

Right click firefox and run as admin. Then you can set it as the default and it will stick. Close and reopen normally. Firefox will now be the default.

Just in case you wondered.

I didn't see this posted previously.

Another thing you can do to permanently make firefox your default brower (along with jaws75's tip) is to go to startmenu->Default Programs->Set Program Access and Defaults->Custom

you can even disable your computer from accessing internet explorer from here.

That does not work. It should but does not. Try it and then click a link in a windows app like Media Player get more skins. It will open IE.
