Win 10 refuses to accept Firefox as my preferred browser

Posted

Despite following all instructions to make Firefox my preferred Browser in Win10, the system persistently tells me that Firefox is NOT my preferred Browser, and I cannot seem to do anything about it. Thanks for any help. This problem has only recently arisen, due to an upgrade (downgrade?) in either Win10 or Firefox?
