I’ve searched off and on for a few, and i think I’m just spinning my wheels. So i figured i would just ask. I’m trying to create a deployable FireFox 4 package that when it installs it doesn't force it to be the default browser. I’ve found how to make it not check after the fact but at that point IE is still not default browser, because the installer changes it. In our environment we need IE to be default so we don't break certain apps, but we would like to give people the option to still run FireFox and decide if they would like it to be default or not. But we don't want it forced on deployment. Am i overlooking something or is this not an option? Thanks upfront for any time and help!

If Mozilla haven't changed how things work in FF4 then this post for FF3 may point you in the right direction.

Thanks,

I have added pref("browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser", false); to a firefox.js and it works well. The dialog window
asking about default browser doesn´t show.

But I cant find a syntax for making FF the default browser. After installing FF, IE is still default browser.

I would like to use the .js syntax instead of using command switch like "firefox.exe -silent -setDefaultBrowser".
Anyone?

Well I dont know if it is relevant and havent tried it but I know this string works in Thunderbrid so I thought it would be worth a try:

Enter the following lines in your firefox.js file and see if it sets it. If not then no harm no foul...i tried. This might allow you to set HTTP, HTTPS & FTP.

user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.http", "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe");
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.https", "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe");
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.ftp", "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe");
