    This should fix the problem:
    Win+X->Control Panel->Default Programs then click on "Set your default Programs", click on Firefox then "Set this program as default"

    However, you found it then it should be OK. Glad you got it sorted.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure if I did that or not.

    Can't believe if the first computer was so easy why this is happening?

    I'll be back.

    Control Panel is no longer listed in win10 v1909 - you now have to search for it.

    In any default setting I could find (by app, protocol...), Firefox is no longer even listed as an option.
    So I right-clicked on an HTML file, selected "open with..." and chose Firefox. The icon on the file now displays as Firefox but the file continues to open in Chrome.
    Is this another Windows enhancement? I'm ready to scan my registry and make manual modifications.

    The control panel is in the "settings" gear icon when you select start menu.
