How do I remove Firefox as my default browser?

I recently installed Firefox 3.6.6. Firefox is now my default browser, but I DO NOT WANT FIREFOX for my default browser. How do I remove Firefox from being the default? The option under Tools, Options, General, that the Help files say to use, DOES NOT EXIST.

Re: How do I remove Firefox as my default browser?

Make another browser like IE the default.

Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > "Set Program Access And Defaults" (on the left) Open: Custom (click arrow on the right) Select "Internet Explorer" under "Choose a default Web Browser" Click OK

If Firefox asks again to be the default then remove the check-mark to check that on each start. Tools > Options > Advanced > General: "System Defaults": "Always check to see if Firefox is the default browser on startup"
