My default browser is firefox(confirmed by clicking on an
html and by asking firefox to check if its the default). When i do
debug or run it opens IE. If i run it through the profiler after
adding firefox into the prefrences for browser to use for
profiling, it still uses IE. Is this a bug?
I guess you are trying your app from the Flex development
perspective. You have to change the browser settings under the
Preferences--> General--> Web Browser section and
select firefox to launch with firefox.
