Yes, make it the default. An Internet shortcut attempts to display the
page in your default browser. If that browser is not currently running,
it will be launched. If you want SeaMonkey to be your default but also
want to open the shortcuts in some other browser, you can't use Internet
shortcuts. I don't know what you can use.
I just ran a test. I used IE to create an Internet shortcut. With all
browsers terminated, I double-clicked on the shortcut. It launched
SeaMonkey to open the page, which is my default. I then shut down
SeaMonkey and launched IE. I double-clicked on the shortcut. It again
launched SeaMonkey to open the page, ignoring the fact that IE was still
Thus, I don't think you had to delete your IE-generated Internet
shortcuts and regenerate them.
