Set Firefox Lite as your default browser

Firefox Lite is available in China, Indonesia, India, The Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
Set Firefox Lite as your default browser if you want it to open links by default. Here's how to do it:

  1. In the Settings menu on your phone, tap Apps & notifications.
  2. Tap Advanced.
  3. Tap Default apps.
  4. Tap Browser app to open a list of choices.
  5. Tap Firefox Lite on the list.

Older versions of Android

  1. Open the Settings application and tap on Apps. (On some versions of Android this button is labelled "Applications" and you may have to tap on Manage applications before the next step.)
  2. Tap on the All tab.
  3. Tap on the current browser that opens links. This is usually the default browser which is called "Browser" or "Internet".
  4. Tap on Clear defaults to prevent this browser from opening links by default. If "Clear defaults" is greyed out, then either you have not installed another browser or you have installed another browser like Opera and it is set to be the default browser. If you have installed another browser, go back to the previous step and repeat with the default browser.
  1. Open a link in an Android application like the Mail application.
  2. Tap on Firefox Lite and then tap on Always.
