    I want Firefox as default browser


    I have tried many things and looked for tutorial but I'm still lost.

    I keep telling Firefox to be my default browser and it doesn't keep the settings.
    I keep going back to I.E.

    I go into Firefox and select use as my default browser and that doesn't work.
    I'm using Firefox 57.02.

    Try here, Jack. In settings, default apps.

    Choose Default Apps in Windows 10 Apps Features Tutorials

    Thank you very much. It seem to be as I want it now.

    Goes to prove that if one knows how to do something it's easy.
    Flying a F14 Tomcat is easy when one learns how to do it.
