Simple Solution
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 22, '02 01:31:31PM

To prevent Internet Explorer from being set as your default every time you restart (or so it seems), set the System Prefs/Internet/Web browser to the one you want, and then go to your home directory, then to your Library folder, and then to the Preferences folder, and get info on the file "", and check the "Locked" box. Now it will stay the way you set it. Once the preference file is locked, it will stay the way you set it. Happy browsing. Note: Link files made with IE in the Finder will launch IE, not the default browser.

This is the way to do it. It should also help stop the iTool account info from disspearing! BTW: Chimera is the best browser for OSX - and that is with most of the features still missing!
