Η Mozilla changed the way you move to Firefox by default Edge in Windows recently.
It is known from Windows 10 onwards that Microsoft has a method of switching default browsers in Windows 10, which is not simple, at least it is not done with one click.
As we mentioned in an earlier post, with Windows 11 things have gotten a lot worse.
Well the Mozilla he seems to be really tired of this whole situation.
In the version 91 on Firefox, released on August 10, the Mozilla managed to change the way the browser switches used by Microsoft to make it difficult to change hers Edge.
The company now allows Firefox become your default browser very quickly.
With its reverse engineering Mozilla you can set it Firefox by default directly from the browser without having to go to Windows settings.
Η Mozilla obviously tired of the complicated way of setting up a default browser, a process that Microsoft makes it even more difficult in Windows 11.
"Everyone should be able to set their defaults simply and easily, but they can not," said a spokeswoman. Mozilla in The Verge.
"All operating systems should provide support for default applications so that users can easily set the applications they want as default. This is not the case in Windows 10 and 11, and Firefox uses other aspects of the Windows environment to give people an experience similar to that provided by Windows Edge when they choose him Firefox as their default browser. ”
Η Mozilla has long been trying to convince her Microsoft improve its browser default settings in Windows with an open letter to Microsoft the 2015.
Nothing has changed and Windows 11 makes it even harder to switch between default browsers. Thus the Mozilla began to apply its own changes to Firefox shortly after the launch of Windows 11 in June.
So far, Google, Vivaldi, Opera and other Chromium-based browsers have not followed suit. Mozilla and we do not know exactly how the Microsoft.
Η Microsoft of course states that the Edge is the most secure browser for Windows, and it does it all for security.
