windows 11 edge browser scrourge
Windows 11 keeps trying to change my browser from FF to their Edge spyware/virus (it asks EVERY time I start FF). I managed to get it stopped once - difficult and time-consuming, but the next Windows update re-installed it. I have used FF for 15 - 20 years and it works superbly for my needs and nothing from MS ever seems to work.
How can I stop this?

You need to check your Win11 O/S default browser settings. When you installed Firefox it does ask to be set a default Browser does that not work. Otherwise if the problem persist you will have to ask in a Windows 11 forum about how to set default Browser setting.
Completely useless. MS will not allow the owner to pick and maintain his own defaults (browser to recycle bin, etc.). Edge is little more than a force-fed spyware/virus. Windows 11 completely lost over 6 YEARS of business emails and replies when I was forced to "upgrade" to the "better" version of Windows 11. Every time I try to start up Firefox, I get a "do you want to make Edge your preferred browser" and my answer is always "G. D. NO!". But MS knows better than I what I, so it just changes to what it it wants you to have regardless of your wishes. Are there no boundaries to your greed? Sieg heil, Big Brother! Wolfgang
sorry; it just doesn't work that way. even following many different approaches, only ONE actually worked even after an update. the others only temporarily at best.
