    I know this sounds crazy, but is it listed under Mozilla?

    OK, another crazy question....

    You're not by any chance running the portable version of Firefox, are you?

    Can you force Firefox to make itself the default ? Hit the hamburger menu icon under the X in upper R corner\Options\ then check box, restart FF, acknowledge - Yes

    Yes. I tried. When I click make default, it takes me to settings|default apps page. But Firefox is not in the list of browsers.
