PFF as main browser

hi everyone

1st, thanks for this version, John

I would like to use pff in place of my "normal" ff, cos im tired of having to backup things (with mozbackup) each time i do a system restore (or a ghost restore), which i often forget to do.

I would just like to know how i could make a registry file, to register pff as my default browser, so that whenever an html file is clicked or whatever, pff is launched (well i know i can do this by choosing ""open with"->pff"...), and also get all proper associations which are done when you click (with normal firefox) on "choose ff as my default browser".
That means, for instance, have the proper FF icons for html files etc.

thanks (and sorry for bad english)

p.s. i know i could launch the normal FF and see which regkeys are created, and then replace all FF paths with those from PFF, but this would mean also some unneeded entries (only needed by normal FF)...
