  1. Annoying default browser issue


    I wonder if anyone else has figured out how to deal with this. I hope it falls under the Windows 10 category.

    I have 4 versions of Firefox: stable, beta, portables of each.

    Every time I launch a different one, Windows asks me to make it the default. When I get to the Windows 10 default programs settings, I see 4 Firefox selections that look identically the same.

    What do you do?

    :)

    How can I prevent my default brower from being reset to Edge from FireFox?

    After setting my default browser to Firefox using [Settings \ Default Apps ] it gets reset to Edge on the next reboot.

    How can I prevent this from happening?

    It is very annoying to have to reset my default browser after every reboot.

    I do not want the Edge browser to open my .pdf files

    Thanks - that worked. Edge is a pain. The last Windows Update turned it into my default browser, and then it became the default application for .pdf Most annoying!

    Annoying default browser issue

    I think you are looking at it back to front. It's each Firefox that's asking you to make it the default when you launch it.

    Tackle it from the other end, open each FF in turn, go to aboutAnnoying default browser issue :preferences and on the General page untick 'Always check if Firefox is your default browser'. You'll also find on that page a 'Make Default' button, click it in the version you want to use as default.
     
  5. Looks like that's the best option available.

    In case anybody is curious, that's what it looks like

    You have to try each option one by one until the browser doesn't display the "Make Default" button.

    Thanks Bree
