Can't make Firefox the default browser

Brand new E5-576G-5762 (2 days) I am unable to make Firefox my default browser. In default apps, click on MS Edge, my only choices are Edge, Chrome, IE, or look for an app in the store. In every previous W10 machine Firefox was available here.

Thanks

    Press start and type default m8, you'll get the option to change the default browser from the list to Firefox. In Windows 10 it will still give you a notification about changing the browser so make sure you select it.
    BElieve in YOUrself.

    Tried that, didn't work, hence my post. Ended up going through the back door so-to-speak. Setting defaults by app. (Further down the page.) Default Apps, first part of page now shows Firefox. But click on that and Firefox is still not one of the choices??? Anyway, it's working now. Thanks!
