How to make Opera 9.5 default browser for all apps, not just TouchFlo?

Of course, on the TouchFlo Internet tab Opera is the browser that comes up, but how do I also make Opera the default browser for all apps that call on a browser? For example, the RSS reader lets you link to a browser page, as does a stand alone Twitter app. I'm sure there's a regedit somewhere. Thanks!

Re: How to make Opera 9.5 default browser for all apps, not just TouchFlo?

another and simple way is..


open opera, type opera:config in your address bar then enter....... itll take ya to opera settings and stuff, scroll down to install, click first time browser launch, then save, now exit opera completely, now re enter opera and bamnnnnnnnnnnnnn all email links and etc will open in opera.......

the cabs works fine, but this is good to know info if ya lose the cab or just wanna do it through opera...

I have the exact opposite question: How do I make some other browser open with the "Launch Browser" button on the Manila/TouchFlo 3D Browser page?

Where is it and how do you modify it?

Someone else posted this on XDA Developers But I havenít had the opportunity to try to confirm this as a work around:

All you need to do is to modify a file named ďInternetPortal-en-US.xmlĒ which is located in \Application Data\Manila. Use the freeware application Total Commander to navigate to this file and once you locate it press the pen/paper icon on the bottom of the page and that will open the file on the screen so you can edit it.

Once the file is open in Total Commander just add one of the following lines after the line <InternetPortal> which is towards the top:
Opera is:
<BrowserExe>\Windows\OperaL.exe</BrowserExe>
mobile\OperaL.exe</BrowserExe>
Internet Explorer is:
<BrowserExe>\Windows\iexplore.exe</BrowserExe>
SkyFire is:
<BrowserExe>\Program Files\Skyfireskyfire.exe</BrowserExe>
Iris is:
<BrowserExe>\program files\iris browser\irisbrowser.exe</BrowserExe>

I installed Opera Mobile 9.5 beta to my storage card, so my new path is:
<BrowserExe>\storage card\program files\opera

*Note if you can't save your changes - make sure that the file isn't set on "read only" (click the hand holding the paper icon and uncheck the "read only" box. You may have to click twice to remove the setting)

As I would be looking at going to Skyfire, Iím guessing my path would look something like this: <BrowserExe>\Storage Card\Program Files\Skyfireskyfire.exe</BrowserExe>

There are however other commands in that .xml file that I'm not sure how they effect things.

Again, I havenít tested this yet (I'm at work), but looking at the information posted in the .xml, it does appear to control/direct what happens when that Launch Browser button is pushed. Whether or not other files also have an effect, and what these changes would effect, are yet unconfirmed (as I saw no replies after that post).

OK, I was on the right track.

Here's the answer here (confirmed working on my TP2):
