Re: setting Firefox as default browser using NVDA

Sorry, but this is just a shortcut way to get to the settings area for the default browser.  I did that and it doesn't stay set.

Subject: [nvda] setting Firefox as default browser using NVDA


I am trying to make Firefox my default browser.  I have the latest update to Firefox and am using the latest master branch of NVDA.  I am running under Win 10.


When I open Firefox it comes up with the "Firefox is not your default browser" dialog.  I click on the appropriate buttons and set Firefox as the default browser but every time I restart Firefox it still wants me to make it the default.


I am thinking that perhaps there is a dialog popping up that NVDA is not seeing and reporting to me but I am not sure of this.


Has anyone else had this issue and if so did you find a solution to it?
