Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------

Yup - happened to me with PR2 (although it hasn't on my laptop with
the final release). It's NS playing the same game as MS.

The way to get it back is to go to IE5's Internet Properties->Advanced and
tick the option which says "Check for being the default browser" or some
such. Next time you fire up IE5, it will discover it's been usurped by NS, and
give you the option to be the 'real' default again.

Has anyone else had this happen to them? I installed NN6 two days ago. When
it asked to be my default app for HTML files, I said, "No thank you". But
now, when I try to click on a link in Microsoft Outlook Express, the IE5.
opens, but the page won't load.
