Unable to associate .url extension to your browser after reinstalling it into a sandbox.
(IE disabled, no browsers installed outside sandbox)
You have installed your browser outside of its default location inside the sandbox, and your browser's .exe location is not updated in the unsandboxed Windows registry.
Update your sandboxed browser's .exe location in the registry using Regedit
1. Open Regedit
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT > Applications > firefox.exe > shell > open > command > Default
3. Edit the Default key to your .exe's location.
OLD: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" "%1"
NEW: "C:\Sandbox\TJ\Firefox\drive\C\Firefox\firefox.exe" "%1"
4. Now retry assigning .url to sandboxed Firefox in default programs. Now you can have no firefox installed and still be able to open .url shortcuts!
Tested in Windows 7 x64 Pro
