    I followed the steps to edit the registry. Only problem is the key that is
    unwriteable is HKEY local_machine, software, classes, https. I do not have
    https. I only have .htt. I have tried giving all permissions but
    creator/owner will not take. I am really getting frustrated with Microsoft's
    constant problems.

  2. This is not a Microsoft problem... this is a "computer owned by OceanLover"
    problem. Subtle difference, but important.

    Do you have other Web browsers installed? Are they, or have they ever been,
    set as default? I have seen Web browsers (Mozilla and Deepnet for example)
    really screw up the file type associations.

    I have no other browsers. I have tried installing in safe mode with
    networking but get the same error - I do not have https in my registry, only
    ..htt I cannot get creator/owner to accept a change. I click apply and it
    keeps defaulting to read only.

  4. Start in Safe Mode and install from there.

  5. You can create a registry file from the following text. Copy into Notepad
    then save with a reg extension - copy from the beginning of the line
    "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00" until end of post.

    LAWL, that bug is over a year old and has since been patched.

    Products effected: Firefox 1.0.3, Mozilla Suite 1.7.7

    We're in Public Release for Firefox
    Mozilla Suite is 1.7.13 Public

    At least find something recent.

    Most all of those are a year old; furthermore, name one person you know that
    has had their Firefox browser hijacked? I can name quite a few on the other
    end. Telling people that they should continue using IE is like giving them a
    browser death sentence.
