How do change default browser settings for installer?

I want to roll out Firefox as standard software at the company I administrate, but we have lots of stuff that runs on IE plugins, and thus IE needs to stay the default browser, or users will just hit "yes" when opening Firefox the first time and then complain when they can't open internal links. Is there a way to disable it from asking if it should be a default browser? I checked out the cck wizard, but it didn't offer that option. Is there a registry key or file where I could change that option before it is opened?

hello Leskat, please refer to the following article on how to implement a lock file for settings: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Locking_preferences

put the following line into the mozilla.cfg file in order to disable the query for the default browser:

lockPref("browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser", false);

You should be able to use the CCK extension to lock preferences or set new default values
