Bug with Firefox 1.0.6 ???
« on: August 03, 2005, 06:23:22 PM »
If I change default browser from Firefax to something else and back Firefox reports it is not the default browser next time it is opened (even though it is selected as default in BTS).

Anyone else experienced this?

nothing to be alarmed at but i'll look into it.. it may be as simple as BrowserTraySwitch using the short version of a filename and firefox comparing the registry entry with the long version of its name, etc.

there is no "standard" way for a browser to indicate that it is the default browser, so all browsers have slightly different ways of checking if they *think* they are the default browser.  it's a real mess.  thank you bill gates.
