My default browser is currently Firefox. On those rare times when I do open Safari, it displays a message at the top of the Favorites page asking if I want to make Safari my default browser. How do I make this go away?

Edit 1: I am using High Sierra.

  • What version of macOS are you on? I'm on High Sierra and it seems to act differently than yours – Brandon Rader Nov 10 '17 at 15:40
  • If you want Safari, set it as default browser – LexS Nov 10 '17 at 16:17

Without knowledge of your macOS version:

  1. Open System settings
  2. Choose General
  3. Choose from the pop-up menu in the default-Browser section your preferred browser.

    My default browser shows up as Firefox there. Basically my problem is I want to stop Safari from nagging me about changing my browser when that isn't something I want to do. – pythoncoder01 Nov 19 '17 at 1:46
