Vista hates firefox

Recommended Posts

I have firefox set as the default browser, yet everything still opens in IE. What the hell is going on? How do I tell this stupid operating system to open things in FF? I'd just delete IE but then I can't go to windows update.

What do you mean by "everything"?

 

I mean, I'm a pretty casual user. I open FF and go to sites. The only things to click on outside of that would be windows update and maybe email links that would open in Outlook/Thunderbird.

There are programs that if they have links inside the program they will only open IE no matter what. 3DMark, and Steam do this if I remember correctly.

Control program > default programs > set default programs

 

Make sure Firefox is set as the default for everything that IE would be normally.
