Why do links from apps open in Chrome instead of Firefox?

I recently got a new phone and having an issue where, for example, if I open a link on someones Instagram story, the link opens in Chrome instead of Firefox even though Firefox is my default browser. On my old phone I didn't have this issue. Actually, links opened in the app instead of browser and somehow I can't figure out the settings in this new phone to work similarly. How can I get everything to work with Firefox instead of Chrome?

Hi

If you search in the Android Settings app for Default browser app - which browser app do you have set as the default?

Helpful?

It shows Mozilla Firefox as my default browser (as I said already). I don't understand why some things still keep opening in Chrome even though Firefox is my default browser :/

Are these links openining in a full version of Chrome (with an address bar at the top of the screen)?

If under Default Apps, you select Opening Links, is Chrome listed?

Yes it's the full version.

I added some screenshots of what the settings look like.

Chrome is not on the list at all.
