When using the AbstractBrowserField in Eclipse Scout running on Windows 7, it is using Internet Explorer to display HTML contents inside a Scout Form.

I have Firefox set as default operating system browser, is there any chance Scout will use Firefox instead of Internet Explorer?

    return new ScoutFormToolkit(new FormToolkit(display) {
      public Form createForm(Composite parent) {
        Form f = super.createForm(parent);
        return f;
    }) {

      public Browser createBrowser(Composite container, int style) {
        Browser browser = new Browser(container, SWT.MOZILLA);
        adapt(browser, false, false);
        return browser;

There would be also the way to implement you own SwtScoutBrowserField according your needs (therefore see
