I use firefox as my browser(I like it the best) I have edge on my computer because I upgraded to windows 10. I really dislike microsoft edge. I recently downloaded a couple of pdf's , in the settings it says that firefox opens the pdf. then I click on the pdf and when it opens it has a button that wants me to put edge as the default reader and so I go to the settings on firefox and it says that firefox is the reader tat opens the pdf but their is no way to make firefox my default pdf. it is really frustrating, as I said I really do not like the edge browser. Is there any way that this is fixed? thank you for your help!

Click the Windows key on your keyboard Then just start typing DEFAULT and you should see "Default Apps" I have Windows 11 and it may be different in Win10, but look for "Chose default app by file type" near the bottom. see screenshot You should then see a search box and you can type pdf and you should then see .pdf and you can set Firefox.
