    Here's the problem.
    I was slimming down my "Open With" list and discovered duplicates of Firefox for HTM and HTML. I deleted the value for FIREFOX.EXE at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.htm and .html\OpenWithList. When I checked the "Open With" list, the duplicates were still there.
    Opened Registry Editor and the values are back. :confused:
    I checked the keys under HKCR and they are only default.
    Firefox is the default browser.
    Anyone have an idea of how I can get rid of the duplicates ?
    Thanks,
    T. :)
