I'm having a lot of trouble with this...
Google got me a script that almost works, but I think there are more
registry keys to make Firefox the default browser. When you run Firefox
it still thinks it's not the default browser, non-admin level users
can't set it as default, and there a few html files that still want to
open in Notepad when double clicked.
Anyone want to help with this?
script is attached
