Recently, my Win 10 started deferring to MS Edge as the link browser. I went to Settings/Default Apps/Browser and there is no Firefox icon.

I then went to 'Set Default by App' and there is no Firefox icon.

I then went to Firefox menu, and there is no Options button to be able to set Firefox as default.

I'm stuck, please help.

Cheers
