Default Way to prevent redirect to Amazon Appstore?

Every time somethink links to the market, something in the Fire redirects to the Amazon Appstore. Anyone know how to break this? I can't change appstore or market defaults in the Application manager.

Not sure if this really helps but you can use Titanium backup to freeze AmazonAppstore, the links should open then.

I'm glad there's a workaround but I'd love a way to make APK's open in android market from browser, and keep amazon market available.

That sounds like it should work. If OP tries this, he should have to option to not set the Market as the default app. If he doesn't, he should be able to select which app he wants to use each time.

Just rename "MarketIntenProxy.apk" to "MarketIntentProxy.apk.bak" that is located in system/app and reboot. Then market links will open the market and not Amazon's app store
