  1. I would like to use firefox as the default browser that opens start menu links in Windows...


    From other posts I have read others have the same issue, and I cannot find an answer if this is possible to change from Edge to Firefox. Yes, my default browser is set to Firefox in my Windows 10 settings.

    Start menu default internet acces icon screwed?

    You generally set that via the Start Menu settings (right-click start menu -> properties).

    I had that issues a while ago, and it meant removing it from the Start Menu, and reinstalling my browser to get the icon back, it was very odd.

    a problem with firefox been the default browser


    No I don't remember seeing it before installing Waterfox. Also, I tried uninstalling both Firefox and Waterfox and then installed Firefox, still not present on the Default Browser list.

    Windows 10 1809 with the latest updates but the same problem was there in 1803. I didn't notice it before then.

    I tried the suggestions in the link you provided and nothing worked except the last one with the command prompt command. That worked on the laptop that was most affected and made Firefox appear on the list and is now my default browser. I would like to use firefox as the default browser that opens start menu links in Windows... :)

    I also have a desktop which has had Firefox as the default browser forever but it doesn't show up on the Default Browser list and none of the suggestions worked to make it appear. I'm not going to mess with that one too much as Firefox is already the default browser so I'll be fine unless it somehow gets changed.

    Thanks for your help. I would like to use firefox as the default browser that opens start menu links in Windows... :)

    Start menu default internet acces icon screwed?

    Hey guys I need your help fixing the default access icon on the start menu, as far as google searches suggested default user access and all it only fixes the IE icon, but when I chose fire fox to display it's just a globe when clicked on it still displays IE's properties but doesn't start firefox instead. Help please? *Respect :respect:*Cry :cry:

    BTW it was not like this before, I just wanted a clean install for my browser.
