Question from ZephyrWulf
Is there a way for Sims 3 to use a different browser?
My Sims 3 Game Launcher performs an error by opening Internet Explorer instead of Firefox when it needs to open up a link to their website. I don't see an "Options" menu in the Sims 3 Game Launcher to fix this problem.

Try opening FireFox and just browsing to store.thesims3.com
I also had problems with IE not triggering the downloads correctly, but this worked for me.
Well, all programs (doesn't matter which) will use "Default Browser" for opening something... Open up Firefox (this works with all browsers) and go to Preferences (or Options) and find the "Make <browser> default browser?" and check it. This will make Sims 3 (and everything else) open that browser when connecting to the internet through a browser. Works for me on my Mac... Opens on Firefox now in stead of Safari
From what i've read, IE is hardcoded into the software.
