Windows keeps trying to force me to use their new EDGE browser
Is anyone else getting this sudden downloads of EDGE browser from Microsoft for Windows 10? I got some big July 2020 Cumulative Updates, Security Updates, etc. last week and installed them. They also installed something for EDGE which was a window that would not close and was forcing me to go through a bunch of windows and fill out "activation" info. I finally opened Windows Task Manager and ended the task to shut it down. I then tried to uninstall it but more installation was being forced onto my laptop. Finally after a few days the uninstall button was highlighted in the list of "apps" and I was able to uninstall it. Today I got an update on my malware protection software subscription from a different company. It restarted my laptop, which was fine, however it brought an install yet again of EDGE, but I use Mozilla Firefox faithfully and have for years. Big fan of Mozilla and I donate every year and try to participate in surveys and all that. I have Firefox in my Windows 10 settings as my default browser. Nonetheless it keeps being foisting on me. I don't know how to reach Mozilla but I suspicion I am not the only one highly annoyed by this aggressive repeat downloading stuff. What I thought I could do is start a thread in the Mozilla Community and see if enough other people are upset. Perhaps Mozilla can do something with Microsoft about this. I would think Google's Chrome users are also upset by this. It is annoying the hell out of me because it just takes over my laptop and I can't get into my Start Menu or anything else because it is forcing me to activate it. I will also be complaining to Microsoft for whatever good that does and looking at forums to see if there is any backlash from other users.
