My problem is Firefox "overtaking" the Internet Explorer, such that the files I downloaded from the bank's site using the Internet Explorer had the Firefox logo embeded on them, rather than the usual "e" logo of the Internet Explorer. This makes all installations of these files go through Firefox, which the Bank's software does NOT accept. To solve this problem, I uninstalled Firefox, deleted all bank files, and loaded & intalled them again using Internet Explorer, BUT Firefox DID 0vertake the Internet Explorer. PLEASE help me in this matter, and How can I delete Firefox TOTALLY from my Windows XP, so I can access my bank account. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Delete all downloaded files AFTER unistalling them 2.Load the same files using Internet Exploere and install them 3. Actual Results: My problem stems from the fact that the Bank's software does NOT accept Firefox, and requires Internet Explorer for accession. The problem will repeat itself EVEN if when I uninstalled Firefox from my windows using Add/Remove programs option, and downloaded the same files and install them. HOW can I TOTALLY remove Firefox from my computer ?? Expected Results: Can NOT access the Bank's system, and thus cannot log in. HOW can I TOTALLY remove Firefox from my computer ??
Open Internet Explorer, and from the menu: Tools -> Internet Options... -> Programs (tab) -> check the bottom checkbox (have Internet Explorer check if it's the default application). Click OK. Close Internet Explorer. Open it again. It will ask if you want to make it the default; click yes. Next time, if you don't want to make Firefox the default, don't tell it to when it first starts, please? :) (If that works, please mark this bug Resolved/WorksForMe, thanks)
You can always open an HTML file in Internet Explorer by dragging the file to an open Internet Explorer window, too.
