where is config for Set Default Programs stored

I need to find out the path of these firefox installs. The entries don't seem to show up in regedit. Any ideas?

One of the installs probably is something like Firefox Maintenance - where it is, I can't remember. There are FF directories in Program Files (for x64), Program Files (x86), ProgramData maybe, user/appdata/ local and roaming, I'm at work, cannot look them up.

alright thanks. but this list has to be stored somewhere. ?
I assumed HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths but it doesn't seem to be the case


it's not about the installs (I installed these instances), I want to know where the Set Default meta is stored.

no. I want to determine where Set Default Programs defines its list. That list must be stored somewhere.
at this point it doesn't really matter, I simply went into the firefox instance that I wanted to be the main and set it as default browser from there.
