The same happens to me.
I installed 'Iron' once, deleted it and reinstalled.
You probably cannot set the default browser after such an action.
Recommendation: Backup your saved URLs, and saved passwords.
Delete Iron and the Google webbrowser, then install 'Iron' again.
I assume that your problem has been resolved.
Good luck !

I have a Google Gmail account and synchronize my Bookmarks with that account, which mean, everywhere I open Google Chrome and log into my account, I will receive all my Bookmarks.
I just need to go into the Google Chrome settings before leaving the computer and log off my account again - Otherwise other will have all my Bookmarks too.

When I installed Iron, I imported the Bookmarks from my installed Google Chrome.
Something strange happen - It destroyed some of my Bookmarks and it was synchronized too, which mean the Bookmarks also was destroyed in my account. Hmmmmm !!

I know I can export my Bookmarks to my HD as HTML, but didn't think it was necessary, because I had all the bookmarks online in my Gmail account.

I want to try Iron, because my Google Chrome crash all the time, telling "Flash Player stopped working".
I had tried to uninstall everything and install Iron with same result, but I still had the stupid IE9, which follew Win7.

Okay - Thank you - I'll try one more time.
- Uninstall everything - Except EI9, which I can't.
- Install Iron and make it as Default Browser.
- And then try to install Chrome too ;)

I am no tech but Windows 7 does not recognize SWIron as a program you can make default.

Please address this in next version?

It's not possible to make it as "Default Browser" :roll:

I had actually just found out Iron can be the Default Browser.

I used Chrome and had some short-cut to home site's at the desktop.
They all showed the Chrome Icon.

Then I uninstalled the Chrome Browser and installed the Iron.
When starting Iron, it asked "Make as Default Browser" and I clicked "Yes" and then all the short-cut's at my desktop changed to Iron Icon's.

The next time I started Iron, it asked again and then I just click "Don't ask again".
Now is Iron the Default Browser.

The click button "Make as Default Browser" in the Iron settings is inactive.

What will happen if I install Chrome again, I don't know.
Maybe it will take over again, but I don't want to try right now.

There is a delay in the answers, because the Admin need to approve them, before they are released to the forum.

After installing the Iron I was thinking about I should install with Admin Right's, but didn't do it.

Thank you for the little useful program to Set a Browser as Default.
Later, when I got the time, I'll try to install Chrome too, to see what happen and if Chrome overtake, I'll use the program to make Iron as Deafult ;)
