I keep getting a message asking whether I would like Firefox to be my default browser. How do I stop this happening?

To prevent the default browser message.

  • Open the Firefox browser
  • Click the Menu icon in the top right of the screen 
  • Click Prefences
  • Click the Advanced icon
  • Click the General tab
  • Remove the tick from Always check to see if Firefox is the default browser on start up
  • Click OK

You should only have to make this change once and it will prevent you from seeing the message even if you login on a different PC.
