    I can go thru the process, I can choose Cyberfox as default browser, but it never appears where the default browser should on that list of defaults....

    Thoughts...???

    Thanks.

    Have you set it default in the Settings app?
    Or it does not appear there?
    If not, try to import this good old tweak:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\RegisteredApplications]
    "Cyberfox"="SOFTWARE\\Clients\\StartMenuInternet\\CYBERFOX.EXE\\Capabilities"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\CYBERFOX.EXE]
    @="Cyberfox"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\CYBERFOX.EXE\Capabilities]
    "ApplicationDescription"="Cyberfox delivers safe, easy web browsing. A familiar user interface, enhanced security features including protection from online identity theft, and integrated search let you get the most out of the web."
    "ApplicationIcon"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Cyberfox\\Cyberfox.exe,0"
    "ApplicationName"="Cyberfox"

    "StartMenuInternet"="CYBERFOX.EXE"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\CYBERFOX.EXE\Capabilities\URLAssociations]
    "ftp"="CyberfoxURL"
    "http"="CyberfoxURL"
    "https"="CyberfoxURL"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\CYBERFOX.EXE\DefaultIcon]
    @="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Cyberfox\\Cyberfox.exe,0"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\CYBERFOX.EXE\InstallInfo]

    "ReinstallCommand"="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Cyberfox\\uninstall\\helper.exe\" /SetAsDefaultAppGlobal"

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\CYBERFOX.EXE\shell\properties\command]
    @="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Cyberfox\\Cyberfox.exe\" -preferences"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\CYBERFOX.EXE\shell\safemode]

    Correct paths if required.

    Beware using this registration code. It is not fully correct and is not suitable for use in all cases, is only suitable for one particular case.

    What is the harm? You can always delete entries and re-install the app in the WORST case?
    Can you provide more detais?

    Not, it is not dangerous, but as you know Cyberfox is available in four different versions, and here it does not apply to everyone.
    That's all I wanted to say. Maybe also that, that this does not get anyone to help, it is useless in this case, about what was told above.
    And, if anything at all to begin to change or improve, you must first know what needs to be improved, and which are the cause.
    If you do not know what to change or improve, you can not to improve nothing ever.
