    10162 won't let me set Cyberfox as default


    No matter how many times i set Cyberfox as default and then under "default programs", Windows 10 won't keep it.

    Have you tried to go to Settings => System => Defaults and set it as a default there yet??

    I noticed in the change logs for a future build, comments about disabling or removing some third party utilities because they are not compatible with Windows 10. It does not name those third party utilities, but perhaps yours is one of those.

    What occurred in my case was I did a clean install of build 10162 and then I installed FireFox. From there I set it up as my default browser with no issues..

    Well,, as long as you have the browser you want as a default that's all that matters.
