Hi,
See if setting Firefox as the default for all users helps.

From Control Panel> Add or remove programs> Set program access and defaults> choose Custom> click the down arrow> set Fx as the default.

Plan B... Try the DefaultBrowser utility at http://windowsxp.mvps.org/defaultbrowser.htm

Hope this helps,
Don
