    Default browser settings suddenly not working on my Windows 10


    Hi,

    Every time I have to close and reopen my default browser, which is Firefox 60.0.1, a popup window comes up asking if I want it set to Firefox as my default browser and then in brings up the Default Apps Settings window. This started about the end of June 2018. First, Firefox is already set to be the default browser app in Windows 10>Settings>Apps>Default Apps Settings. Second I didn't make any substantial changes before this started. Just the default updates for Windows 10, Firefox, Office 365 Home. I use Windows Defender for my anti-virus software. Where and what should I be looking for to find/fix the problem?

    Thank you!

    :)

    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.
