In the Secure Browser instance of Firefox, click Tools > Options and on the tab labeled "General" there is an option for System Defaults where you can click to have it check for the default browser. If it is not, you should be prompted and can choose yes to have it set as default on the system.

Bob, that's what I did; however it sets the default to the standard version of Firefox (I still have that installed), rahter than the Secure Browser.

Actually doing it within the Secure Browser would virtualize the change so it would be set, but the setting would only be visible within the Secure Browser (so it would think it is default, but the system would not know about the setting). Therefore, it is necessary to set it as default from outside the Secure Browser: in Vista (and Windows 7) you can do this by choosing "Default Programs" from the Start Menu (by default you'll find this at the bottom right of the Start Menu above "Help and Support").
