Set Firefox as default browser with GPO

Hi,

I am trying to set Firefox as default browser, using Group Policy in Windows Server 2003, for a couple of computers with Windows XP in my domain. I have tried to google it and chek around this site, but all I can  find is how too set IE as default browser. I have also tried the "firefox.adm" template I found in a similar topic but that only let's me disable the check, not set firefox as default.

Any ideas/templates would be greatly appreciated.

2.Here's the MSI installer packages for Firefox
One of the options for deploying is "Set Default browser"
It includes full instructions ...

This should do the trick.

3.You have a reg fix here for IE and XP http://windowsxp.mvps.org/IEFAQ.htm#IE_Default
Read inside the reg file to check you have the right path

Im not sure if you can do it through a group policy, maybe writing batch script at logon might work? Not sure how to write the script so apologies if this answer is pointless...Just an idea.
