Recently, I have discovered the web browser Mozilla Firefox, and have become an instant fan. Shortly after I installed it, I made it my default browser and it has worked fine ever since.
Until, when my sister used her user account, she complained that she didn't have Internet Explorer anymore, and couldn't play on her Flash games.
Since the websites she goes on are pretty popular, I would have thought that they would be compatible with most major browsers (especially when Mozilla is more or less the backbone of Netscape, the second most popular browser), but obviously I was wrong.
OK, so I better go back on topic now. I changed her default browser back to Internet Explorer, only to find that mine had been changed back too. It seems that you can only have one default browser across the whole computer.
Am I wrong to say this? Or is there a way for me to have Firefox and everyone else to have Internet Explorer?
At the moment, I have had to reach a compromise and put a shortcut to Firefox on my desktop, but all my other web links, HTML documents and Internet shortcut on my Start Menu appear in Internet Explorer.
That article talks about putting the Firefox installation program onto a CD, with a few settings as well, but what I want to do is have Firefox as my default browser and Internet Explorer as everyone elses.
This may help. Go to click here. About half way down the page you will find 'IE View for Windows'. Download and install. It's an extension which allows you to open your present page in 'Internet Explorer', should it refuse to work correctly in 'Firefox'.
