change default browser


When I launch my web dynpro application from se80 or if i do application configuration, I dont want to open browser window in internet explorer. How can I set any other browser as default browser for web dynpro abap applications?

>Web Dynpro Application always run in the default browser of your system.

That isn't actually true. This isn't specific to Web Dynpro either. It has to do with how the SAPGUI is used to launch any web application.

In order for SAP to be able to generate a single sign on ticket we actually create an HTML control silently within the SAPGUI Control Framework first. This gives us secure connectivity to the browser instanace to be able to allow a special local, self signed SSO2 ticket to be generated. We then do a detach on the HTML Control instance so that it opens as a broswer disconnected from the SAPGUI. We are using an SAP provided ActiveX control as a wrapper around IE - so this is a little more complicated than just asking the OS to launch the default browser.
