Hi
My default browser is set to Firefox it says so in Windows > Settings > Web Browser
and in Firefox > options > startup

How ever when I double click a .html / .htm file in Explorer nothing happens
I tried changing the default to edge and it worked but I have firefox pluigin that depend on FF being the default browser changing the default back to FF hasn't worked

Is there a registry setting I can check?
