  2. Cant set FireFox as my default browser

    1. Re-do the steps (default programs) and set Firefox as the default.

    2. Double-click a URL file to test if the default browser is correctly set.

    3. If in Step 2 you find the default browser is correctly set, then configure Firefox
    not to do the default browser check during startup, if such an option is available.

  3. How do I make Firefox my default browser on a Windows 10 laptop

    Step 5 is incorrect; when I go to choose an app, the only choices are Edge, IE, or Chrome; Firefox is not listed.

    How to set Firefox as the default browser?

    Cant set FireFox as my default browser

    Just tried your suggestion.

    Step 2 does open the URL in Firefox.

    Step 3. unchecked the "check FF default on start up.

    Went back to Default apps in the Systems Setting window.

    Select FF when offered as one of the default choices

    Win10 Settings still does not show that it has set FF as default.

    FWIW: I had a similar problem with trying to set Adobe Acrobat as the default for .pdf files. Win10 Settings | System | Default apps would not reset to Adobe Acrobat for .pdf files. The only way I could get the Default settings to be correctly reflected
    in the Settings window was to open Acrobat and force the issue from within Acrobat by making Acrobat the default in the Acrobat preferences window.

    This is a Win 10 UI problem at the very least and should be fixed.
