Expected results: SeaMonkey should NOT override existing default browser setting.
Hmm, when you launched the new version you should have seen a dialog/sheet asking you if you wanted to set SeaMonkey as the default client (with some options). Are you sure you didn't confirmed it (I'll attach a screenshot so you can see how it looks)?
Created attachment 705090 [details] Default client sheet This is how it looks when you get the question wheteher to set SM as the default client.
Ric, please see comment #1.
Here's what the install program needs to do: 1) Check to see if SeaMonkey is already set to be the default browser. If it already is, then skip the dialog and leave the setting. 2) If it's not currently set to be the default browser, then skip the dialog and honor that choice. 3) Only if this is a new install should the user be prompted as to whether he/she wishes for SeaMonkey to be the default browser.
We already do 1-3, but: 1) We check for more than just the browser 2) We skip the dialog if you choose so
