Dell media direct button: Make it work with firefox!

Ok if your a dell laptop user with a dell media direct button but you really honestly don't use it at all I got a treat for you. Like you I got fed up with the button always there mocking me. A while ago I came up with my own solution that maps the "home" key for media direct to firefox.

The first solution used absolute paths which worked for me but I wasn't thinking of public release.

Now I've redone the application to detect your firefox installation, and the best part is after you first run the program for the first time it will install itself so dell quickset detects it as media direct.

Installation is easy:

1. Download the file
2. Copy it to where you want it to stay on your computer
3. Run it!

The program will automatically modify dell quickset to recognize it as Dell MediaDirect, and will automatically detect and launch your firefox for the first time. Couldn't be easier!

If you ever move the program from it's current location just launch it again and it will detect the changes reconfigure itself and let QuickSet know of the changes.

Couldn't be simpler.
