After every Win10 update Edge is reset as default,
Starting FF it asks to be set as default, which I then do.

When I go into the Win10 settings, Default apps, and click on default browser, Firefox is not listed,
only Edge, Chrome, IE, and 'Look in app store . . . . . '. It is listed under the file types for html, htm, and is set for those.
Is there a simple way to get FF listed there also, so to set it permanently.

This is a Windows issue and not a Firefox support matter. Moving this to MozillaZine Tech.
