MIcrosoft 10 has an upgrade coming. Reportedly they are including Edge which will auto install AND a warning not to install Firefox or Chrome. What hoops will I have to jump through to keep Firefox and ditch Edge?

Chosen solution

Edge is already installed on your Windows 10 computer. You also already have Firefox installed, so you can continue to use Firefox like normal.

Please do update to the latest version of Firefox, Update Firefox to the latest release and also make sure Firefox is set as your default, Make Firefox your default browser

I can't even install firefox on my pc. Microsoft Edge keeps blocking it somehow. Does anyone know how to disable Edge and install firefox?

Hi gottaloveme, Tyler Downer's post was marked as the solution by the person who asked the original question (Tgillen). Your issue may have similar symptoms, but it is likely a different cause/solution. You should use https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new where volunteers can get more details about your setup.

Because this thread is solved and more people might start using it for their own questions, I'm going to lock it.
