All,

I am a newly 'switcher' and first off I would like to say that I love my new apple powerbook. It is so much better than WinXP. However I am very windows savy and not so on the MAC side. I have just recently installed Firefox and I am trying to find out how to set Firefox as my default web browser. If anyone knows how this done please let me know. Thanks for the help in advance.
