    Opera...default browser?

    How do I make Opera my default browser? Do I need to delete the BB browser?

    Thx,
    T

    Sorry T....

    I thought the option came up when you opened a link.
    Explain to us what you are seeing when you open links to a site.

    There isn't any way to get Opera as the default browser. The BB Browser has to be the default.

    Okay, guys...got it. What I was "hoping" for was when I clicked on the "browser" icon that instead of the BB browser opening, the Opera would instead. But, I guess I have to open Opera specifically. Got it...doesn't hurt to ask.

    Thanks, gents!

    I'm pretty sure I saw this asked somewhere a long time ago and the answer back then was no. You can try looking under Options>Advanced Options>Browser and see if Opera is an option there. I don't have Opera installed at the moment or I would look. Let us know what you find, Rob.

    What is confusing me is that when I open a link I am not getting that option to open it in my opera browser and I have been running beta 2 for quite a few days now. Any help?

    I get the option to open it in Opera, but what I was referring to is when I click on the browser icon, I wanted Opera to open. Guess we can't do that.

    That's it. There's no way to change the default browser at the moment.
