 After making FireFox 2.0 my default browser, I'm no longer able to return Internet Explorer 6 to default browser.

Reproducible: Always

I forget exactly how it works but if you go to Tools | Internet Options in Internet Explorer and select the Programs tab there's an option along the lines of "IE should check to see if it is the default browser" If you tick that I think it asks if you want to make it the default browser the next time you start IE.

  I tried that and failed to work. That was the reason for my bug report.
