Edge starts unallowed

Free YouTube to MP3 Converter starts Microsoft Edge although Firefox is defined as Browser. Only an Uninstall of Microsoft Edge ends that behaviour. But after next update Edge is again installed and again Edge is started, what I don't want. Have you the possibility to avoid that? I don't know, where that behaviour can be ended.

Sounds like an issue with the "Free YouTube to MP3 Converter" software you installed on your computer. It might help if you post a link to the website where you downloaded this software so that someone here can take a look.

P.S. You said, Free YouTube to MP3 Converter starts Microsoft Edge although Firefox is defined as Browser.

I took that to mean that the "Free YouTube to MP3 Converter" program has a setting to choose the Web browser that opens. If you meant that Firefox is set as the default browser in your Windows program settings, it's possible that a Microsoft Edge or Windows update reset your default browser and you have to set it back to Firefox. See How to change your default browser in Windows 10.

You also said, Only an Uninstall of Microsoft Edge ends that behaviour. But after next update Edge is again installed.

I don't know if you can actually uninstall Microsoft Edge from your computer since it comes with Windows 10. See https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4576988/why-can-t-i-uninstall-microsoft-edge and https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftedge/forum/all/how-do-i-remove-microsoft-edge-from-windows-10/860cd7b9-f903-4386-a71a-84f94a110c46

You can get more help with that on a Windows forum such as https://www.tenforums.com/ or https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10 ... or the Microsoft Edge forum at https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftedge/forum
