Visual Studio opens the default browser instead of Internet Explorer

Scott Guthrie has made a post on how to change Visual Studio’s default browser:

1) Right click on a .aspx page in your
solution explorer

2) Select the “browse with” context
menu option

3) In the dialog you can select or add
a browser. If you want Firefox in the
list, click “add” and point to the
firefox.exe filename

4) Click the “Set as Default” button
to make this the default browser when
you run any page on the site.

I however dislike the fact that this isn’t as straightforward as it should be.
