How Do I Set Firefox as the Default Browser

There are many Internet browsers available and you can use one or more that best suit your preferences and requirements. If you like using Firefox® as your primary browser, you can set it as your default browser. This means that all web pages and links will be opened using this browser. To set Firefox® as your default browser follow the instructions below.


  1. Launch the Firefox® web browser.
  2. From the Main navigation bar, click on “Tools” and then choose “Options”.
  3. In the Options windows, switch to the “Advanced” tab.
  4. In the “System Defaults” section, click on the “Check Now” button. Here you will be able to check if Firefox® is the default browser.
  5. When the “Default Browser” message appears, click on the “YES” button.
  6. To close “Options”, click on the “OK” button.

Tips and tricks:

  • If you would like to verify that Firefox® is set as your default browser every time it launches, then check the box, “Always check to see if Firefox is the default browser on setup” in the “System Defaults” section.
  • To change your home page go to “General” tab in options, enter the desired address into the “Home Page” field and click on the “OK” button.
