Hello thefabe,

Usually during installation of the 3rd party party browser (ex: Firefox), you will have the option to make it the default program.

If not, then you can also select it in Default Programs to make it the default browser. The program itself will usually have it's own settings that you can select to make it default as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
