    How to Stop Edge Popups in Firefox


    Past few days when I'm using Firefox I keep getting these popup messages at the top of the screen asking me to switch to Edge. Basically, these are nothing more than annoying ads to move you to Edge. I like Firefox and use it on my Apple iMac as well as my Dell Windows 10 laptop. I'm not a fan of Edge, so how do I stop this?

    :)

    Prevent the popup "Get the new Microsoft Edge"

    I have Microsoft Edge and I do use it. However my default browser is Firefox. Every day when I first open Firefox I get a popup saying "Get the new Microsoft Edge". A common suggested solution is to turn off 'get tips, tricks and suggestions as you use Windows'; however, this is set to off by my company (it being a work laptop). Does anyone have another suggestion?

  3. Microsoft Edge blocking Firefox

    You don't really need to 'nuke' edge to install firefox.

    You can get it installed and made default in 3 easy steps

    1. Download the latest firefox here
    2. Start firefox - it should prompt you to set it as default - Follow what happens, and pick firefox as your default
    3. Else, Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Default Programs (use win r or paste that into explorer. Find firefox, and select "set as default"

    That should make firefox your default and not fire up edge automatically.
