Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.13) Gecko/20080313 SeaMonkey/1.1.9

After installing IE 7 which claimed (without asking) to be the default browser, SeaMonkey fails to reclaim that status. In preferences / system all the respective checkmarks are set. Also the option to reclaim. Unsetting and setting again also does not help.

Not sure. That bug says that not all open with SeaMonkey. In my case *all* open with IE.

After going to "Add or Remove Programs", "Set Program Access and Defaults", "Custom" and switching it several times (only once did not work!). It fixed the issue. At least I hope so.
