    FYI:

    Try: Setting Firefox as the default browser does not work - What to do | Firefox Help

    If that doesn't work backup your profile:

    Download Hekasoft Backup & Restore 0.85

    Uninstall Firefox:

    Geek Uninstaller - the best FREE uninstaller

    Allow scan for leftovers and remove them.

    Manually check here for leftovers and delete if found:

    C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox
    Press the [Windows key+R] to open a Run dialog, type in %APPDATA%\Mozilla\ and click OK to open the Mozilla folder, then delete the Firefox folder if found.

    Reboot.

    Download a fresh copy of firefox and install it.

    Restore your backed up profile using Hekasoft Backup & Restore.

    Then try setting as default browser again and see if it works.

    Guys, can we take a break for the day?
    I have so much work to do today and I've accomplished nothing.
    Let's try again tomorrow.
    have already done that fix Firefox exercise earlier today and a few minutes ago.
    Let's say we just give up on it.

    Thanks for all of your help.
    Have a pleasent evening.

    Uninstalled the program and reinstalled it.
    All is good now.

    Probably had one of those updates that didn't quite work as it should have done.

    Could have been. At least I can move on to other stuff.
