"Class is not registered" changing metro default browser/ App reloads when flipping tablet


(Firefox for Metro Graveyard :: Install/Update, defect)

28 Branch
Windows 8
Not set


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: guigs, Unassigned)



(Whiteboard: p=8)

Steps to reproduce:

1. Install FF 25.01
2. Install Nightly 28.01
3. Make Nightly as default browser
4. Remove Nightly
5. Make FF 25.01 default browser
6. change the default firefox protocols in windows, only the nightly shows and I can not unclick it. When I attempt to click on a link in an email (Windows Live) I get "Class not registered"

Actual results:

-Got error message "Class is not registered"
-Side affect of work around is when the newer version of firefox is uninstalled(ie Nightly) the user dated is erased. "Remove my Firefox personal data and customizations " is not selected. 

Expected results:
-Nightly is unclickable in the option to change default browser
-yoga convertible and after the last update, every time I flip to tablet mode every page reloads and as an app where possible. I would be in the middle of something, flip to tablet and lose everything I was working on.

This will be disabled in bug 940677. The rest of the task and this particular bug can be fixed in v2 when we re-enable the feature once it has some kind of UI that tells users a switch is happening.
