    The setting to make Firefox the default browser has been moved from the Options window - Advanced panel/General tab to the Options window - General Panel in Firefox 34. scootergrisen posted about this in another kbforum thread.

    The related bug report has the background and reason for this change: Bug 1040868 - Add "Default Browser" check setting to preferences

    I'll add this to the Need Changes list.

    P.S. Someone else will have to make a Linux screenshot (it can always be added later).

    Thanks. I approved your revision but I didn;t mark it ready to localize. I added "[Fx34] Need screenshots for linux, win8" to the Need changes list.

    I just marked this article ready to localize, even though it still needs a screenshot for Linux. The Startup, home page, tabs, and download settings article links here and it's been marked ready for L10n.
