I recently upgraded Firefox to version 3.0.5, but I want to keep SM as my
default browser. For some reason, my computer thinks that Firefox is the
default--and both browsers are set that way. I don't know why Firefox is set
that way because I didn't purposely do it, but I want to change it. (It's
NOT checked off in Firefox Tools, Options, System Default.) I tried setting
SM as default in the control panel settings (Add/Remove Programs, Set
Program Access and Defaults), but once I OK out and then open it up again,
the setting isn't saved. I tried rebooting, but that didn't help. I'm using
Windows XP, SP3 with SeaMonkey 1.1.14. Help. This has become a war between
dueling Mozilla browsers.
since you're using windows, do this. Close SM and FF.
Open Internet Explorer, click on Tools, Internet
Options, Programs tab, and at the bottom, check and
make IE the default program. OK your way out. Close
IE then reopen it and close it once more. Now, open SM
and it should ask if you want to make it the default.
Click yes, close SM and open FF. It will ask if you
want to make it the default. Click no. Now, SM should
be set. Is it?
