- setting Firefox as default browser using NVDA
Re: setting Firefox as default browser using NVDA
Ok, now this is just crazy.
I decided to try setting the browser to Brave which I have
been using for a while and see if that would stick. It did. I
next went into settings and set the browser back to Firefox and
now it is sticking and working as it should. this is just nuts.
Thanks for all the suggestions.

do not understand what is happening here.
When I just tried it again when I click on the browser
button it showed Firefox as being the default browser. I
clicked on it and then clicked on Firefox to make sure it was
set and still it doesn't stick.
Maybe there is something wrong with Win 10 on my system and
it isn't saving the settings in the place that Firefox is
expecting it. Not sure what is going on.
Thanks for the suggestion though.

As a general
note, setting anything as default under Windows 10 must be done
in Windows 10 Settings, Apps, Default apps.
The "in program" dialogs are an anachronism that "don't stick"
under Windows 10. Those programmers who wanted to make their
"in program" dialogs Windows Version agnostic query whether
they're running under Windows 10 or not, then if they are
actually trigger that Windows 10 Settings dialog to open to the
correct pane and item to allow you to switch it.
I don't even bother "in program" anymore but just go to the
Apps, Default Apps and handle it there.
