With Firefox set as your default Windows browser, you’ll be automatically guarded from invasive tracking methods like fingerprinting and cryptomining, thanks to Firefox’s technology that blocks more than 10,000,000,000 trackers every day. ( See what Firefox has blocked for you .) Your bookmarks, history, open tabs, form information and passwords are accessible wherever you’re logged into Firefox, from your PC to your phone to your tablet.
If you’re using a PC — like an HP, Dell, Lenovo or Acer brand computer — that runs the Microsoft Windows operating system, here’s how to set Firefox as your default:
Click the menu button (three horizontal lines) and select Options.
In the General panel, click Make Default
The Windows Settings app will open with the Choose default apps screen.
Scroll down and click the entry under Web browser.
Firefox is now listed as your default browser. Close the Settings window by clicking the X in the upper right to save your changes.
Another option is to go through the Windows 10 operating systems settings:
Go to the Windows Start menu and click the Settings icon.
Click Apps, then choose Default Apps on the left pane.
Scroll down and click the entry under Web browser.
Firefox is now listed as your default browser. Close the Settings window to save your changes.
