Set default browser in Sys. Pref to Navigator (Chimera) 2. In Proteus, MSN or Menu, click a web link That will open Internet Explorer, everytime. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set default browser in Sys. Pref to Navigator (Chimera) 2. In Proteus, MSN or Menu, click a web link Actual Results: That will open Internet Explorer, everytime. Expected Results: OS X should have opened Chimera instead
I finally got so sick of this that I deleted Explorer. And what do you know, now it opens everything with Mozilla (which I've never set to be my default browser). It seems the only way to get Chimera to be your default browser consistantly is to delete everything else. (Yes, I've deleted my LaunchServices caches and even edited DefaultHelperApps.plist, but nothing seems to fix the problem permanently). Chimera needs to be more aggressive on this. Doesn't David Hyatt work for Apple? He should see about getting the stupid IE-by-default behavior removed from OS X. Then someone needs to write a routine into Chimera that deletes all other browsers on launch. You think I'm kidding!
This has nothing to do with Chimera but with OS X where MSIE is set as the default. Can be changed to INVALID. For solutions visit that page and complain to Apple OS X - Feedback http://www.eternaltedium.com/cgi-bin/chimeraboard/ikonboard.cgi?s=3dc62af460a4ffff;act=ST;f=1;t=150;hl=default+browser
