We need this to properly set the default app when it was set under HKCU previously and the user is given admin rights.

rstrong/seth: I was trying to verify this bug, but could not get anything to create keys in HKCU. What would normally create the keys there that we want to clean up?
For the purposes of verification you could set them manually. Alternatively, on WinXP as admin you could set IE as the default browser, as a regular user set Firefox as the default browser (this should create the keys under HKCU), grant the regular user admin rights, change the default value under HKCU Software\Classes\http\shell\open\command, and then set Firefox as the default browser.
btw: this will only remove the values which is the minimum necessary. We will add the ability to remove empty keys as part of bug 369770.

I just got confused when the keys remained (and were even taken over by IE if I switched the default back). v.fixed with Firefox 18.104.22.168 rc2.
