Fixing Google Desktop links
September 25, 2007
but there is one minor annoyance that has been bugging me. Whenever I click on a link in a sidebar gadget, that link loads in IE7, even though my default browser is Firefox. Is there a solution to this? I'm on Windows Vista, if that helps (or hurts).

(I had a problem in XP with certain files opening in IE rather than Firefox and had to poke around in the registry to fix it. I can't remember where I found the fix however. Sorry...)

Try uninstalling and reinstalling Google Desktop. IIRC, you get asked which browser you want to view links in.

Neither of these solutions work. I've already got Vista set to default to Firefox all web links, but stupid Google Desktop still launches stuff in IE. Oh well.
