    Default Changing the browser that launches

    In Froyo, how do I change which browser and page lauches when I hit the little grey globe at the bottom/center of the screen?

    It used to launch the Dolphin Browser "speed dial" but somehow got reset to the stock browser.

    Default Re: Changing the browser that launches

    Is it the wrong icon? Or is an action defaulted to the wrong browser? If it's a default issue you can try clearing defaults for the stock browser in manage apps. Then when you try the action again, it should prompt you to select a browser and you can pick dolphin and set it to default.

    That's exactly what I needed to do. Thanks Dev. I tried going to "manage applications" → "all" →"Browser" before, but I just hit "Clear cache" and "Clear data". I never noticed to scroll down and hit "Clear defaults".
