erased file associations

Overall, I'm really impressed by K-Meleon, but for now I just wanted to give it a short look and use Mozilla after that again. So, during installation it unchecked the box to open all html files with K-Meleon. One would assume that the file associations are untouched by K-Meleon now. But it erases them! After using K-Meleon for a while I noticed that in Windows Explorer all html filed have a blank icon instead of the Mozilla icon! That's quite bad.

Grr, the sentence "So, during installation it unchecked the box to open all html files with K-Meleon" should be "So, during installation _I_ unchecked the box to open all html files with K-Meleon" of course.

Strange...I did exactly the same thing, but file associations were retained.
Win95, K-Meleon0.5 (first install)

I had the same "problem" as Fabian.

I have:
Win98se
Mozilla 0.9.4 installed
K-Meleon v0.4 uninstalled before installing v0.5 (no reboot in between)(leuk om hier een "bekende" tegen te komen Erick :-)

Same as JanC, Win98SE and Mozilla 0.9.4. In the preferences of Mozilla 0.9.4 (Advanced - System) the option "Warn me If other application change these settings" (the wording may not be accurate) was disabled.

I submitted a bug for kmeleon 0.45 and 0.4 early in September.

My config is described in the bug report:

Has anyone had this problem who did NOT have Mozilla installed?

The problem is probably a bug in .4, which would incorrectly "reset" permissions on uninstallation.
