    Clean Install Firefox 59.0.1 and problems.


    Before clean Install.
    --------------------------
    I updated Firefox to 59.0.1. Pages were not loading fully. After I went through many posts in this forum and else where, I disabled hardware acceleration in options. But one suggested successive update may be problem. clean install may help. Hence I went for clean install.

    After clean install:
    --------------------------
    1) It could not be made default browser. I tried all means
    a)default app in settings does not show firefox.
    b) Tried default programs editor as admn. Error appears. It could not make it default.
    c) I tried make default button in firefox options. It takes to settings default app where list does not have firefox.
    d)I tried the following command in admn command window.
    C:\Windows\explorer.exe shell:::{17cd9488-1228-4b2f-88ce-4298e93e0966} -Microsoft.DefaultPrograms\pageDefaultProgram
    It doe not have firefox or mozilla at all.
    Hence all efforts failed to makeit default.

    2) further putting chrome folder in appdata|mozilla|firefox|profile|xx| also did not brin back my old firefox settings like top sites settings etc.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    You are already discussing this in Make firefox as default app for - Windows 10 Forums . Don't start a new thread; that just leads to confusion.
