    one way to do it is to uninstall dolphin. if you still want it - reinstall it, but this time around dont select it as the default.

    go to settings > applications > manage applications > dolphin

    there's an option there that says launch by default.. hit clear defaults.
    that should revert you back to using the regular browser.

    Ok Here's a question regarding the exact opposite. How do I make EVERYTHING use Dolphin as it's default browser. For example, the Voice search still brings up the Droid browser but I want it to bring up Dolphin instead.

    I'm having the same problem. Also, every time I launch Dolphin, it tells me that it's not set as the default browser, and whether I'd like to set it as such. I click yes every time, and the message still comes up at every launch... any ideas?

    Sounds like you have some kind of conflict (or permissions issue).

    One thing to try is to uninstall then reinstall dolphin.

    Another thing to try is to reset dolphin to defaults and try setting it as the default again.

    As to making "Voice Search", or even the "2.1 News and Weather" app, those do not use the "Default Browser", but specifically have their own browse capability built in. If you click a link from one of the pages that are shown in "Voice Search" results, it does open in Dolphin (if Dolphin is set as your "Default Browser")

    Already tried both uninstalling/reinstalling and settings reset. Doesn't seem to help

    -edit- Found the solution: In Settings>Applications>Manage Applications, hit the Menu key, and then set the Filter to "All". Then open "browser" and hit "Clear Defaults".

    I have the same problem. Even if I set Dolphin (which kiss ass) as the default, it always opens the stock browser...

    the solution says

    home settings > apps>manage apps> then press menu button to go to filter

    BUT when i press menu all there is to select is sort by size...no filter option or any other option
