I recently downloaded firefox browser on pc and is my browser of preference...Even though this so, i did not make it my default browser..Everytime it asked if i wanted to make it so, i said no..

Then today i find out that it is my default browser and won't work with some sites..I don't know how it became my default browser because i did not set it to be so..How do i undo it?I no longer want firefox to be the defaut browser..how do i undo it? :?: :?: :D

Open whatever browser you want as default and look through its options/preferences. There will be one to make it the default.

Additionally in Firefox select "Tools > Options > Main" and make sure that "Always check to see if Firefox is the default browser on startup" is not selected

You don't undo that setting, you enable another browser as the Default to change that.

You would normally set a default browser using the the options or preference settings within the web browser. ...
Meaning you open the web browser that you want as the new Default and set that one to be the Default.

you mean you havent found out the start menus default programs tab on vista or the equivalent from xp?

search on the xp:s left, upper bar... theres section wich has windows udate etch. on it... on of those has the selections, wich has "microsoft selection" on it, this changes general preferred pÄrograms to be microsoft products. It changes default programs to microsoft created ones, likely to use internet exployeder (sarcastic tone), outlook etch...

On IE go to: Tools> internet options> programs> and the resettings for it are right there.

Why reply to a thread from 2007?
