    Browsers for Win 10 advice


    Win 10 Pro 20H2 build 19042.685 All browsers mentioned are the very latest, up to date.

    I seem to be constantly on the search for the 'perfect' browser! For a long time, I found that Edge was great but it began to cause odd issues on some sites. So I went with Google Chrome. Again, very nice but had issues. Then Firefox. Ditto. Then Brave. ditto.

    The problem always seems to be browsers being over protective and blocking some site elements or function. I understand for example that Flash sites are defunct and i always hated flash anyway. But maybe it is Javascript or something? (This is supposed to be a security risk?)

    But really, is there a browser that isn't nannying me all the time, that works with all the common website scripts, code and so on? How about the more obscure ones? Any recommendations please?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Here is a specific example. This link is in an email and leads to a photography site (safe). click on the big Facebook button on that site in most browsers and a modeless window pops up but hangs instead of asking me to log into facebook.

  2. advice on browser change

    FWIW, Fx also has a sync feature.

    Sync can be both a blessing and a curse, especially for Chrome/Google.
    We see lots of infected computers in the malware removal fora in which "sync" results in stubbornly persistent malware that continues to respawn on the user's computers.
    I don't need it and -- largely for that reason, I don't use it. But some folks can't live without it...

    As you mention an "old" Firefox profile, I suspect that is the root cause of your performance degradation.
    I suggest walking through the steps in the tutorial I mentioned in my earlier reply.
    As a first step, Mozilla Safe Mode (not to be confused with Windows Safe Mode) is a reversible debugging step that helps to isolate the problem to add-ons. It provides guidance in the direction to take to resolve the performance issue.

    For the record, one can certainly install several different browsers on the same computer. A user is not limited to only one browser.
    The only downside to that approach is that -- for security and stability -- one needs to be sure to keep each browser (and its add-ons) fully patched and updated.

    Cheers,
    MM

    Unable to set default browser

    • Does this issue happens while you try to set other browser as default too or is it specific to specific browser?

    Any browser.

    Already did the steps you suggested. It's some kind of bug where it's impossible to set a default browser at all.

    I heard elsewhere from one other user
    that it seems to be a problem with upgrading to 10 on the SP3. Sounds very specifc.
