.0 .0 .x branch is unable to set some OS integration registry keys after installing the beta
The actual fix is to backport bug 370571 to the branch and this bug is about providing a workaround to this problem for people installing Beta 1.
Comment on attachment 287794 [details] [diff] [review] NSIS script for workaround This will check for an existing official release of Firefox 184.108.40.206 or greater and sets that installation as the default. 220.127.116.11 and greater have the helper.exe that support the /SetAsDefaultAppGlobal and /SetAsDefaultAppUser command line arguments. I decided to use NSIS instead of a batch file since I had to enumerate registry keys to find the second install location.
Comment on attachment 287794 [details] [diff] [review] NSIS script for workaround r=sspitzer robert answered these questions of mine: 1) it's been called helper.exe since 18.104.22.168 an onwards (before it was uninst.exe and a few other names) 2) helper.exe will ask to elevate. 3) "Install Directory" was not quoted. finally, I think his FixDefaults.exe is the way to go, better than his batch script, which only works for the default install case. Is the plan to have a support article and have it point to FixDefaults.exe?
