  1. Set "Type here to Search" in Windows 10 21H1 to use my Firefox Browser


    ..not Edge? I know it can be done, and I had it that way before I did a Factory Reset. I also had saved the directions link, but I deleted it as I had too many links saved, to my liking anyway. Does anyone here know how to set that up as I cannot find the website I found the answer on now? Thanks for any help, so appreciate it. I did go through your tutorials and "searched" for answers but only found info on changing default Browser which I am already familiar with, but that doesn't change Edge from sticking like glue to that bottom, left "search" area

    :)

  3. Windows 10 will not permit me to select Firefox as my defaut browser.

    Hi Walt,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    Let me help you to fix the issue.

    Let’s try simple steps and check if this helps. I would recommend you to select the different browser as default browser and try selecting the Firefox as you default browser again.


    • Type default on the Windows search bar and select Default programs.
    • Now click on Set your default program and select the browser.
    Hope this works. Keep posting us with the status we will be glad to help you.

    New Windows Media Player Plugin for Firefox

    Anyone who uses Windows Vista and Mozilla Firefox may be pleased to hear that the Windows Media Player team has now released a plugin for Firefox that should allow the browser to play WMP content on websites. Here are the steps to get it working:
    • Installation of the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin may require administrative access to your PC. It is recommended that you close all other open browser windows before continuing with the installation.
    • Click the Install button to automatically download and install the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin.
    • Depending on your security settings, you may see a Security Warning dialog box. Click Install to install the plugin.
    There is a known issue if you are using Firefox version 2.0.0.3 on Windows Vista with the installer failing with error code -203. To work around this simply restart Firefox (you will get a notification that Windows Vista will be changing the Firefox compatibility settings) and then install again - the second time should succeed.

    The download is available here, and the new plugin works on all versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista (although it is mostly intended for Vista, as that currently has no WMP support in Firefox).
