help. i let a driver update without paying attention to it, and now BING is my default browser. i hit my Firefox tab but bing pops up instead. looked on the extensions/add on list and FF and DuckDuck are listed as default, bing not even on the list. tried refreshing, no effect. went into windowsX10 add/remove. its not listed. looked in rootkey, a place i have no business being, its not listed But if i go to the FF troubleshooting page, down in the Add-on lists, bing is listed and shown as enabled where is this nasty thing and how can i get rid of it
