Firefox NOT in Microsoft store
Unfortunately I had to get a new laptop and it's Windows 11. I want to load Firefox as my browser (I've been using it almost since it's inception) thru the Microsoft store. I do NOT want to activate Edge which is preloaded and want's everything but my bloodtype to set up Edge so that I can go get Firefox. I've pulled up article after article that it can now be directly loaded from the Microsoft store but when I open the store and search for Firefox... it's nowhere to be found. I really don't wanna start up the edge. Anyone know what's going on with this? Or is Microsoft being it's usual sneaky self and forcing me to activate edge and then maybe firefox will show up in the store? Hopefully someone will answer this quickly as I sit here waiting to continue my setup. Thanks!!

Nevermind.. i figured it out. I was actually going to the microsoft store app onboard the new laptop and it will not bring it up there. but, when I did just do the search from the windows bar it brought it up in the browser without me having to set it all up like when I just directly tried to open edge. Ugh.
I assume that you have read this article?
- Firefox for Windows in S mode is not available for download from the Microsoft Store.
Note that the MS Store (MSIX) version also is available via the Mozilla server.
