Firefox won't stay my default browser. Every time I sign on after rebooting MS changes the default to I don't know what. It doesn't say what is the default. It wants edge I guess but I deleted the entire edge app and all its dlls. So how do I make the choice through the "set defaults" settings permanent?

Firefox keeps pinning ads for random pages that I have never visited. It happens inconsistently, but sometimes when I open Firefox there will be a random ad page pinned. Even if I unpin it, and reopen Firefox the same ad page will be pinned again. I have tried looking it up in settings but could find anything, that make it pop up.

I enjoy Firefox, however I've recently realized that hackers are using the Firefox browser to attack and enter my system, despite a firewall and VPN and even in private browser. I've been forced to cease use of the Firefox browser and decided to bring this to your attention after realizing that this surely will become widespread if not already. Is Firefox aware of such attacks and if so what are you doing about it and when do you think I will be able to safely use your browser again? Also I'm open to explore any suggested setting that may help with the security of your browser. Thanks.

I have Firefox set to "view PDF files in Firefox", but this is not happening with sites like Capital One and Consumer's Energy. these sites are just saving directly to my downloads folder even though I 1) Want to view the file first and 2) if it is going to save a flle, it is set up to ask where the file should be saved.

Neither of these things are happening even though I have them set up correctly in Settings.

Every time I start the computer or reboot and open firefox I discover that it isn't the default browser, as reported in the firefox settings menu. I then go to Defaults apps in control pannel settings and set Firefox as the default which sets the default to satisfy the setting menu which then reports that firefox is now the default browser. The next time I turn on the machine or reboot and check the settings menu I discover that firefox is not the default web browser. How do I set firefox as the default browser permanently so that I won't have to do this each time I start the computer? Thank You.

None of this works.

1. There is no key: "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\HTTP\shell\open\command" in the registry.

2. Went through the registry and changed the values of the following keys: .htm, .html, .ttt, .htw, .htx and hxx and every entry to their reference to: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" then rebooted.

3. After each registry edit and reboot windows10 took a long time to come up with lots of disk activity. This tell me the windows changes all this back!

4. So, how do you fix this??????

I have that issue also it shows up anytime I try PNC.com or my health care insurance. The workaround is using Firefox's private window. I removed my saved login and dumped my data, cookies, site data, and cache but that didn't help. That has been a pain restoring other sites I had saved, but that's another story.

  See image for error message.

Okay, I give up. So, Facebook is or has implemented this Turn on two-factor authentication or whatever it is. What this means for me at the moment is that I am unable to access my Facebook account as it is now forcing me to use this Two-factor authentication thingie, despite that I do not have a mobile phone. (yes, I know it's unusual in this day of age not to have one. I did have one at one time, but for the moment I have no interest in getting another one). I would rather use my laptop anyway.

Doesn't Firefox have a Two-factor Authentication thing that I can use with Facebook? Without a mobile phone using the Firefox browser on a computer or laptop?

Now, from what I can see, Facebook is offering 3 ways of doing this. #1) Authentication app, like Google Authenticator or Duo Mobile. #2) Text message (SMS). #3) Security Key. So, because I do not use or have a mobile phone, I was guessing that my option would only be #1 Authentication app, like Google Authenticator ... which I have never used before, and while reading up on it, I keep reading that I can only use it with the Google Chrome browser?!? If that wasn't bad enough, I typically use Microsoft Outlook, not Gmail. So, I am at a loss at this point.

Again, I do not have a mobile phone. Doesn't Firefox have a Two-factor Authentication thing that I can use with Facebook? Without a mobile phone using the Firefox browser on a computer or laptop?

Help please.

I use my regular gmail account in Firefox and Firefox is my default browser. Chrome pops up a login screen to allow me to sign into my school account or my regular account.

On Firefox when I go to google and click the login button, it takes me to my school login screen. How do I reset it to use my regular gmail account. My school uses gmail.

Can Firefox ask for the correct account when there are multiple accounts?
