Ask Max: How can I change default browser?

Asked on 04/30/2007:

Is there ANY way to make Firefox (or any other browser for that matter) into the default for links clicked from Mail? I really do not like Safari launching itself when I click thru from an email.


The way Apple has started to handle the default browser/email control does bother me. Not only is it counter intuitive but its obscure placement is almost deceptive. The setting can be found inside Safari. Go to the Safari preferences from the "Safari" menu. Under the "General" section you will see the "Default Web Browser" pulldown menu, it is the first in the list. Any web browser you have installed on your computer will be under that menu. Select FireFox and then close the window. From then on you should not see Safari unless you want to. To change the default email application you do the same from within Apple Mail.
