Default Browser - Across all apps?
I installed the newer versions of Opera but ended up reverting back to 9.5 for a few reasons. When I uninstalled the newer Opera versions though, as has been discussed in the threads before, Internet Explorer becomes the default browser. I wanted to make Opera 9.5 the default again. So I updated the following keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shell\Rai\DE FBROWSER\0
Value = Opera Browser
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shell\Rai\DE FBROWSER\1
Value = "\Windows\OperaL.exe"

This made TouchFlo start using Opera again which is great. However, when I click on links within mail or other apps (like TouchTwit) it still brings up Internet Explorer.

Does anyone know what I'm missing? Thanks in advance!

Looks like I figured it out. Posted the details here:


The key though was that I had to set the following key as well:

Value = “\Windows\OperaL.exe” “%1″

all you need to do is go into opera settings and check default browser

9.5 doesn't have that setting. Thanks for the tip, gusper. I thought it must have been hard-coded in some apps to use IE.

It's strange a few folks have reported that there is such an option in Opera 9.5 but I've totally failed to find it. This worked for me though. Of course, if you somehow have the option, use it, I certainly would have. :)

I forget where I read this so I don't want to take credit, but on 9.5 it was in

opera:config (no http:// just opera:config)

Scroll down to installation. Check the first box then save. Exit Opera. I did a soft reset using SKTools lite and was back to 9.5 as my default.

I am now using 9.7 I think its much faster. Just wish my Internet Tab in TF pointed too the 9.7 bookmarks.
