How do I make Internet Explorer 7 my default web browser?  It is not asking me if I want to make it my default web browser when I start it (Internet Explorer 7).

Firefox made itself the default web browser when I installed version 3.0 without asking me if I wanted to change it to the default web browser.

Hello rockerrb,

In Firefox option menu, disable option to make it the default browser.

If the above does not work, here is how to make IE open your URL links:
1. On the desktop, double-click My Computer.  
2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the File Types tab.  
3. In the Registered File Types list, click URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol, click Advanced, and then click Edit.  
4. In the Actions box, type open.  
5. In the Application used to perform action box, locate Internet Explorer (Iexplore.exe), and then click Open.
6. In the Application box, type IExplore, and then click OK.

Hope this helps!
