Windows Update Disables Firefox as Default Browser

(Via Zoli)

“After this week’s Windows Update, Firefox is no longer the default browser. Now, this is so stupid, and most users will obviously reset it in minutes, that I don’t really believe it’s an intentional attack on Firefox. It’s just careless, ignorant. Classic Microsoft.”

If you can’t beat ’em, disable ’em, I guess…. Scoble, what’s your take?

UPDATE 2007-04-04: Zoli says the issue has been resolved with Microsoft’s help. Seems it has its origins in the way Firefox checks if it’s the default broser.
