Windows 7: associating preferred editor with .html makes think it's not default browser

I'm running Windows 7 Pro x64 and FF 3.6.13 .

My preferred editor for editing .html files is gvim. However, when I permanently associated .html files to be opened by gvim, the next time I start FF it says it is not the default browser and if I want to set it to default.

When I do this, make FF my default browser, and then double click any .html file, it doesn't open in my preferred editor but in FF.

I always thought default browser primarily means for browsing the web, but in my case it clashes with how I prefer to work with local documents.

This is tested with a new, empty profile.

Don't let Firefox test at startup:
Tools > Options > Advanced > General: "System Defaults": [ ] "Always check to see if Firefox is the default browser on startup"

I understand, but I want it as default browser, but not default file opener.

I also want that check in case another browser comes along bad and takes my FF away.

I don't know, for me these are two separate things, but it seems they aren't. Confusing.
