    Sorry I totally forgot about changes in 1709. Currently I use 1703. Is anyone willing to test to see if DefaultProgramsEditor works with 1709?

    Thanks for checking. You did run DefaultProgramsEditor via right click context menu > Run As Administrator?

    Try merging this reg file:
    Download, merge then sign out/ in or reboot.

    File contents:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    
    ; Set Default Program
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.shtml\UserChoice]
    "Progid"="FirefoxHTML-308046B0AF4A39CB"
    
    
    ; Set Default Program
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.xht\UserChoice]
    "Progid"="FirefoxHTML-308046B0AF4A39CB"
    
    
    ; Set Default Program
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.xhtml\UserChoice]
    "Progid"="FirefoxHTML-308046B0AF4A39CB"
    Question regarding your old Firefox profile. Did you back it up before your clean install? If not do you have system restore enabled? It might be possible to mount a restore point to extract your old profile.

    I downloaded and did merge after right clicking the file in explorer. Then rebooted. Still in settings default application for web browser shows as edge. Further list does not contain firefox. Further when I start firefox, it asks whether firefox should be made default. There also it takes to settings only.
    I depend upon firefox sync. I did not back up profile.

    If you have system restore points available you can mount one and browse to your old Firefox Profile folder.

    ShadowExplorer.com - Manual

    Browse the shadow copy and locate your old C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

    Copy the Profiles folder and profiles.ini file to a new folder on your desktop.

    Sorry but I don't use system restore personally and keep it disabled so cannot provide screenshots.

    If you manage to recover those items delete your existing Profiles folder and profiles.ini file and replace the recovered copies in the same location as the originals.

    Okay it gets complicated. You can actually use these programs to set file associations:

    SetUserFTA

    SetUserFTA: UserChoice Hash defeated the kolbicz blog

    GetUserFTA

    GetUserFTA the kolbicz blog

    Anyway for now you can try using this:
    Extract to a new folder somewhere handy.

    It contains:

    I've added a config file already so you don't have to create it yourself:

    Contents of SetUserFTA.config:

    Code:
    .htm, FirefoxHTML-308046B0AF4A39CB
    .html, FirefoxHTML-308046B0AF4A39CB
    http, FirefoxURL-308046B0AF4A39CB
    https, FirefoxURL-308046B0AF4A39CB
    Instructions.

    Open command window in the directory that you saved to:

    In the command window add SetUserFTA.exe SetUserFTA.config including the space to the path like this:

    Press Enter. Then exit the window. Test to see if Firefox has been set as default browser. (Open a link from within a document or something)

    RE: The above post. You might need to do Step 3 in the tutorial here in order to be able to open the command prompt:

    Thanks Mr.Callender for your guidance.
    Finally I used my Macrium image with Firefox 58. Now I am with ff58. I have not updated to 59.
    However I would like to know for backing up Firefox profile from appdata whether local, localow or roaming or all the three Mozilla folder needs to be backed up.
    Further I would like to know how to go back previous version of Firefox in case current version gives problem.
