If you don't see your preffered Firefox browser as an option, just do a reset. Hit "Microsoft" type cmd, right click, pick "Run as admin" and execute this:

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\uninstall\helper.exe" /SetAsDefaultAppGlobal

Afterward return to "Default apps settings" and voila, you can choose it here now!

@mr.hackcrag
Myself I like more AMD/ATI approach for being more honest in propagating their products. Anyway, it's hard to judge these two competitors when no one is having cards on the market. So, let's choose the "best card" in better times.

For my needs I'm looking for new AMD APU, seems like next year could arrive at consumer market. This gives sense for me merely random playing some RPG or strategic game.

As avid Firefox user I must admit, that when javascript comes in play, it's slow. After considering Chrome and Opera, Opera wins it for me. Need to say that all of them runs on the same (chrome) engine.

If you still like to play some games in flash, be careful as Microsoft is planning to hard remove flash player from your computer with update KB4577586 or with Annual Update 21H1 (most likely, will come in June). You may either grab some 3rd party flash player or disable windows update with StopUpdates10. The second is more of a solution but you will freeze your whole system.

With the shortages in GPU right now, they all cost double what they normally would in my area. It is not a good time to buy anything.

Yeah, most thanks go to China and Elon, for blocking miners. What's not good for them, is good for us and anyone paying bill for elektricity. Including Mother Nature
