Hi,

I just entered the Tor-community and can?t set the Tor-browser
as standard. I tried it by using the settings within the browser and also
with the Windows(10) function to assign certain apps to browse or whatever.

In the list provided by W10 are only Chrome(which I normally use), IE and
Edge.
I noticed that your browser is recognized as Firefox by Google. Can there be
a
conflict? Must I install Firefox to get it in that list?

Thanks in advance for any reply.

Greetings from Belgium!

Hey Wim,

Did you tried selecting TBBs firefox.exe manually via 'Open with' while
right-clicking an html file?
Works like a charm on my 7x64

Regards,

Andrej

Andrej I don't know what you mean by TBBs. And  you are mentioning Firefox
but the problem
is with the Tor browser. Meanwhile I also downloaded Firefox and there is
everything ok, simple
settings you can adjust.

Any ideas n e 1 ?

Greetzz

Wim

Hey Wim,

When talking about TBB the Tor Browser Bundle is meant. (Including vidalia and little-t-tor; You are calling it just Tor Browser but it's the same thing)

TBB is built using the Firefox Kernel with some additions/extensions and mostly just a secure/careful configuration. So if you are using TBB / the Tor Browser you are always using Firefox.

You can manually by following this guide on Option 2. Here you need to select the path to your firefox.exe (usually in the "Tor Browser" Folder) manually.

Please let us know if this helped,

Andrej,

You won't believe it but right clicking the file doesn't give me the option
to "open with"! I think this must be a Windows 10 thing...

I already noticed a list in W10 where you can connect files to programs to open them with.
But I think it's type of file (e.g.  .exe) and then the program..

I'll check it out!
