Retaining FF as default browser in Windoes 10 after PC restart

Posted

I successfully make FF my default browser and it remains such for the current session. Session = one continuous login period. After restarting or shutting down/powering up the PC (Windows 10), the browser is reset to Internet Explorer.

So every session, I have to set FF as my default browser. Microsoft seems to make other makers' applications less accessible by insisting on defaulting to Microsoft products when available.

I'd suggest a few things:

One, make sure you have all Windows updates installed.

Second, please update to Firefox 64.
