    Resolved [RESOLVED] Can't make Firefox my default browser

    Would you know why the Advanced icon is disabled? And confirm that it is what I need to click to set Firefox as my default browser? Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply, Nightwalker.

    Not sure why this worked but what I did was close all instances of FF and begin a new one running it as an administrator. That Advanced icon was still disabled until I clicked through the preceeding ones. I clicked down the line and when I got to Advanced it was by then enabled. Kind of strange...
