Windows: non-admin user can't associate Mozilla with his HTML files. When I tell Mozilla to associate itself with HTML files, Mozilla tries to write to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT registry. If I don't have admin rights, this silently fails. Mozilla should instead write to user's registry - HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes. It would also be nice to have a check box that tells Mozilla do use user registry instead of system one even when user has rights to change preferences for all users. Repro: Start with IE as default browser. Run Mozilla without admin priveleges. Open Edit\Preferences\Advances\System. Check HTML documents. Close Mozilla. Double click HTML file Result: IE opens Expected: Mozilla opens
