can't set waterfox as default in windows 8


If I try to set Waterfox as default program it is not shown in the list, whether I start form the browser or from the Control Panel. Waterfox is readily shown both in the start menu and the task bar. What do do? Thanks.

Maybe you should try another forum, we do not support Waterfox.

See this post I made recently, in answer to a similar question. It includes suggestions and links to suitable fora.
