Could you explain what the problem is a little more?

Windows 7 works fine with Firefox set as default.

Please be more specific. There is not much we can do with that level of information. How does Windows not start right?

If I set Firefox as my default browser when i restart Windows 7 all I get is vertical rolling. I have to turn off the computer. I restart in safe mode & reset IE to my default browser and everything is fine. I have tried this a number of times with the exact same result.

Try uninstalling Firefox and trying again. Firefox is not known to cause that problem.

Firefox works fine if I just use it, I just can't have it as my default.

did you download the image or purchase it?

Did you get it directly from MS?

I bought a new computer and it was installed on it.

Okay, uninstall it and download the program directly from Mozilla.
