I'm switching back and forth between TB 0.8 (for my actual use) and TB 0.8+ nightlies (to test bugs). Every time I start one of these versions after starting the other, I get prompted whether I want TB to be my default mail program. Ideally, it wouldn't even ask -- but that would break the behavior for people with more normal setups. However, if I say NO, then TB should just leave the registry alone. Not only does it *reset* the default mail program registry in that case (copying back whatever junk was written into the Mozilla 'Desktop' registry backup), but it seems to ding the browser settings as well -- after this has happend, when I start Mozilla, it prompts me to make it the default browser. This behavior probably occurs in Firefox, too; I know it occurs in MailNews (for the default mail client only, in that case; it doesn't touch the browser setting). xref bug 255225 comment 8. Steps to reproduce: 1) Install two different versions of TB in two different directories. 2) Start one; when prompted to make it the default: Yes. 3) Exit the first; start the other. When prompted to make it the default: No. 4) Exit the second, restart the first. Actual result: Prompted *again* Expected result: STOP ASKING ME ALREADY! Possibly related to bug 266168.
I've just seen the correct behavor when starting TB 0.9+1112 while TB 0.9 is the default, so =>WFM
