Port |Bug 447934 – Default browser check doesn't return false if the registry key doesn't exist| to SeaMonkey


(SeaMonkey :: OS Integration, defect)

Windows 2000
Not set


(Not tracked)

(Whiteboard: [fixed by bug 453797])

I did not look into the details,
but Jens Hatlak <> guess SeaMonkey wants to do this too ?

He noted
"Function and variable names are a bit different in /suite/shell/src/nsWindowsShellService.cpp"

Frank Wein <> added
"Some code [in /suite file] is from mail/ shell code to handle multiple application types and the special registry keys needed as default mail client. "

You may want to consider updating the installer and shell service as was done for Thunderbird in bug 404609 which also includes a fix for this bug.

Bug 449423 then ;-)
Depends on: 449423
btw: Bug 449423 also includes file in use support which is SeaMonkey bug 449423. I suspect that Bug 449423 is more applicable since it supports multiple default apps which SeaMnkey also needs to support and Firefox doesn't.
Depends on: 453797
No longer depends on: 449423
Bug 453797 included/replaced bug 449423.
I don't what/if something remains to do here...
Blocks: FF2SM
Not blocking as it's unclear if anything is still to do here at all.

Frank, you know our default browser code, is this solved?
