Change from Google to Firefox.

Mac user. Changed from Google to Firefox. Google continues to open sites though I have enabled 1PW extension in Firefox. How do I get away from Google continuing to open sites so it is exclusively done by Firefox?

  • Have you set up Firefox to be your default browser (instead of Chrome)?

    @Gene_Beinke: Also, if you're planning on not using Chrome at all going forward, it may be worth just uninstalling it. I don't mind it, but I agree that Firefox is looking pretty good these days. :)

    And if it helps anyone else not using a Mac, on Windows the default browser can be changed in each browser — for example, Firefox Options > General > Startup. On Windows 10, there's also a way to choose this in Windows Settings > System > Default Apps > Web Browser. And when installing any nw browser it will prompt you to set it as the default. Cheers! ;)

  • it really depends on your personal usage. Like I am a person who has to do a lot of researches. for that sometimes i have to use sites of different languages. chrome translates the entire site for me.
    accepted that Firefox has got translation add on too, but it fails in a lot of occasions and doesn't let me access the subsequent pages. chrome does it far better. Firefox lets you use a free VPN that quite helps cause few sites are banned for my country. Firefox helps in those regards. still chrome remains my first priority for my works.

    Yeah, very cool! That is one thing I love about Chrome, but Firefox is great too. Glad there's competition. :):+1:
