User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040707 Firefox/0.9.2

When one clicks on a hyperlink in link-savvy applications such as mail client
Eudora, or Acrobat Reader, either the wrong browser will be used to open the
link (even though Firefox is selected as the default browser) or else Firefox
will open the link, but the user will still be asked "choose program to open"
the link.  Also, if both Firefox and Netscape are open at the same time,
clicking on one such link will always result in Netscape's opening the link,
even though Firefox is the default browser.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
(See Details above.)
Actual Results:  
(See Details above.)

Expected Results:  
The target of the hyperlink should open in Firefox, without any further input
from the user.
This is probably another side effect of the lousy-default bug.  Can you try
downloading a new nightly build an reopen this only if it still causes you problems?
