Hi,

  • It register .html and .htm files
  • That's correct, I don't exactly know how to do it ...

Official Facebook Messenger -> https://www.facebook.com/about/messenger
Does someone know how to do QupZilla as default browser of MS Windows 7?
And xhtml, shtml files and ftp protocol association with QupZilla on MS Windows 7?

Well, QupZilla is not yet supporting ftp protocol anyway ....
But you may create associations by right clicking on file and choose open with ... then select always open this type of file with selected app?

Links don't open from any EXTERNAL applications!... (for example: disc burning software, chat software, etc.)
What type does file association lack for working with these applications?
My operating system is MS Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit.

That's right .. because QupZilla is not default browser.
That file associations works only if you are opening htm(l) files from explorer.

Then it doesn't work from external applications now just from windows explorer? Or if I set QupZilla to default browser, then it'll work?

If you set QupZilla as default browser then it should work from all applications.

Browser file associations of Internet Explorer 9 and QupZilla
at present - http://i.imgur.com/5J7Ti.jpg
Do I set QupZilla to the missing associations?

Then one feature request from me:
Windows Installer of QupZilla (optionally) sets the browser as default browser (with all necessary file associations) and associate ftp protocol!

A little help for you, contributors: necessary file associations (MS Windows):
.shtml
.xht
.xhtml
necessary protocol associations:
HTTP
HTTPS

Place to the Windows installer above files and protocol associations, please! <- New feature request!

I've made a blog post as I am not very familiar with Windows programming.

To associate the HTTP and HTTPS protocols with QupZilla, this is what needs to be done:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa767914(v=vs.85).aspx

Not a big deal, but I'm not that used to the QupZilla codebase to promise I'll tackle this bug for you. (But of course I can try, if I have some spare time available in the next days.)

Actually, function to (un)set QupZilla as default browser is enough :-)
