Since changing the filename from firefox.exe to waterfox.exe, I haven't been able to silently set waterfox as default browser.
Please confirm yours work. This hasn't been working on a newly formatted pc (several of them)
I had a similar issue on my Windows 7 laptop -- when I installed Waterfox 14 and pinned it to the taskbar, the pin is created with the "firefox.exe" filename, which does not exist in the new version. The fix for me was to manually edit the pinned icon, located in: %UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar and change the filename to "waterfox.exe".
That way, when I start it from the pinned icon, it sets itself as default correctly, instead of asking over and over if I do a hard/symlink to the "firefox.exe" file. -- otherwise It would just tell me that the shortcut to the file did not exist and delete the pin. (So yes, I did a fair amount of troubleshooting for this silly issue)
Because of the firefox -> waterfox name change I ran into similar issues like:
as well as that previous XULRunner error someone else posted a while back when I did an upgrade instead of uninstalling the app and deleting the entire folder.Edited by vacaloca - 8/15/12 at 4:36pm
