Well, it's official now. Mozilla is going to Redmond to work on porting Firefox over to Windows Vista. A new feature in Vista called the Default Program infrastructure allows a user to set default programs to use for certain functions like browsing or playing videos, and Mozilla needs to make sure that Firefox will work well in it. But there are still issues. Mozilla spokesman Mike Beltzner blogged that "Something like a checklist of the most common OS integration points that have changed from Windows XP would be extremely useful" and should be "accessible to organisations that can't afford to send people to Redmond."
