I have two versions of Firefox installed:

  • version 16.0.1 in c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
  • version 3.6.10 in c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox 3.6.10

In the registry, the key HKEY_CLASSER_ROOT\http\shell\open\command has this value:
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -osint -url "%1"

However, all links are being opened in Firefox 3.6.10 not in 16.0.1. How to change the version of Firefox which is used to open http links?

Windows XP SP3

Open Firefox 16.0.1 and go to Firefox button -> Options -> Advanced tab -> General tab -> Click "Make Firefox the default browser" button.
