Microsoft recently made it easier to set your default browser on Windows 11. While Mozilla said the move was a step in the right direction, the company said there’s more that Microsoft could do to “respect default browser choice on Windows.”
The latest version of Firefox allows you to set it as your default browser from directly within the app. This is quicker than having to jump through Windows 10's Settings app but has to bypass a security measure to work.
Firefox launched "Enhanced Tracking Protection" several months ago as an optional feature to block third-party tracking cookies as you browse the web, but it's now taking that protection a step further. In a blog post today, the company announced that the feature will now be on by default for all new users, and current users will have it enabled by default "in the coming months."
