Damn friggin IE8. I installed “upgrde” and it took FireFox off as default browser. not even a warning/dialog box. grrrr
If you are installing/upgrading IE8 and FireFox is your default browser, you’ll probably have to choose the “advanced” or “expert” (I can’t recall what they called it) installation mode where you have to make all the choices.
Don’t take the default settings, like I did, or you’ll have to go back & mess with Default Program Settings to make FireFox work properly.
