OSX ic.config
Authored by: jimr on Apr 21, '02 03:09:45PM

it seems that IEprovides one of the few interfaces to this configuration system.

in ~/Library/Preferences/ you can find "com.apple.internetconfig.plist"

make sure your http and https helpers are also set to the Browser of choice.

Naturally, make a backup before editing the file.

Then find a small Application called "Vince 1.0" at VersionTracker.

you should be able to change the values to your preferece with that.

Then open the plist in the plist viewer....

you should see the same binary numbers for both http and https.

also look for a secondary entry called "HelperExtra•http"

set the data which might be "01010c" to "000000"


same procedure for "HelperExtra•https".

if you are really brave, you can add other helper applications like hotline, Carracho, ftp, by using the same style as the rest of the list(but that is another Hint)

While you are there, you may also notice there is a bunch of IE basic preferences in IC. ....really wish they would use their own database for that stuff.

You are on your own with this stuff.... however, you should also try to run the BrowserWars to clean up your Prefpane stuff. So far, I have gotten through the IE update and the 10.14 updates without having any signs of reversion....yet.


It is a bit vague, I know, but if you feel comfortable with this stuff you will have some success.
