    Default Browser Keeps Changing to Edge

    Yes, just to confirm again, when I open FireFox before opening any other link/program/app - I get the pop-up to make FireFox my default browser and I check the box and confirm. If I also complete all of Erika's suggestions:

    • Choose default apps by file type
    • Choose default apps by protocol
    • Set defaults by app
    Then for THAT session, everything works ok. But when I shutdown and restart, it all reverts to Edge - the default browser and all my selections for default app by file type, default app by protocol and defaults by app..

    If I ONLY open FireFox before opening any other link/program/app and make it my default browser, but then click on a link within an Outlook mail - the link will open in Edge.

    What confuses me about Erika's sentence: "Set your preferred default browser to skip
    Choose default apps by file type." is the part about 'set your preferred default browser to skip' is this a setting within FireFox after making it my default browser? Because I am changing default apps by file type on the Windows Settings
    page and choosing http and https to be connected to FireFox instead of Edge.

    Regardless, any changes that I make are changed back to Edge after a shutdown or restart and I am completely frustrated by having to reset everything each time I start my computer.

  3. Firefox not showing as default browser?

    HI Zane, sorry you’re having these troubles.

    Here are the steps I would take:

    Let’s run through some items to try to fix Edge.

    Reset Edge. Click start - settings - apps - find Edge on the list. Click on it, and then advanced, terminate, then hit reset. Make sure it’s strong hold on anything is gone.

    Now, uninstall Firefox, reboot, reinstall.

    See if you can now assign Firefox as your default browser.

    Good luck, and let me know!

    - C

    Default Browser Keeps Changing to Edge

    About a week ago, when I start my computer (from being completely shutdown) - open Outlook email and click on any link in an email, it opens in Edge. Firefox has always been my default browser. If I check my settings, it will show Edge as my default and
    I never changed it to that. If I open Firefox before clicking on any links in email, then it asks me if I'd like t make it my default and that will work only for that particular session.

    Every time the computer is shut down and restarted, Edge takes over again.

    I followed all of the steps as described by Erika above, except for the first suggestion "Set your preferred default browser to skip
    Choose default apps by file type." As I mentioned above, I do not understand what this sentence is saying.

    I just check the for windows updates, and everything is up-to-date, no updates are pending.

    I just want my default browser to stay FireFox after shutdown/restart and not have to go through half a dozen steps every time I want to start using my computer.

    I would start another thread, but my problem is the exact same problem as the original poster.
