Windows 10 Cortana won't bring up Firefox for Google search.

Discuss various technical topics not related to Mozilla.

I read somewhere saying Firefox version 40 or above would automatically intercept Windows 10 Cortana for Google search.

However my Windows 10 Cortana brings up Microsoft Edge and hands the query to Bing every time.

How can I rectify it?

Moving to MozillaZine Tech as this would be a Windows issue.

Could you please tell me what I am supposed to do?

Have you moved my post to somewhere else? If you have, could you please give me a link? Or am I suppose to do it myself? Which forum am I supposed to move it to?

Thanks!

The only thing you need to do is have patience. Your post is already in the Tech forum and that's where you just posted.

As of the Anniversary update, Microsoft no longer allows Cortana to use any other browser or search engine.
Latest: Firefox/57.0.2 *ESR/52.5 - Mobile/57.0.1 - Thunderbird/52.5 - SeaMonkey/2.49.1
Nightly: Nightly/59.0a1 - Mobile/59.0a1 - Daily/59.0a1 - SeaMonkey/2.55a1
