    Go to your current default Browser in settings/applications/manage applications/all and clear defaults. Next time you search is going to ask you which browser you want to use. Check the use as default bellow the selections and chose your browser. Same with voice search vlingo/google, etc.

    Haha dang that's exactly what I asked but wasn't what I was looking for. My apologies for not being more specific. I thought Maybe there was a master reset to default switch. My problem is when I view a picture message, I accidently set it to open in a picture editing app rather than the standard picture message view. How would I correct that default?

    Yes it did. Is this a MOTOBLUR function where it pops up and ask what application you want to use as default? I've only seen the atrix ask so it has puzzled me. It asks a lot. I guess it resets its self at times

    I've noticed any app that is set as a 'default' is reset when it is updated also.
