Mozilla brought the Firefox internet browser to the Microsoft Windows Store app store. Thus, Firefox became one of the first third-party alternatives available in the Microsoft Store. Let’s also note that the Mozilla internet browser uses the Gecko browser engine.

Microsoft’s new open store policies are finally making it possible for third-party browsers like Firefox to appear in the Microsoft Store. Although Google Chrome is not yet on the platform, Opera was quick to take its place in the store.

“Previously, if you were using Windows and wanted to use Firefox, you had to download it from the internet and go through the cumbersome process from Microsoft,” explains Mozilla. “Now that Microsoft Store has changed its policies, choosing Firefox as your desktop browser is even smoother and comes with the latest Firefox features. ” he adds.

Firefox’s release on the Microsoft Store comes just months after Mozilla beat Microsoft’s default browser protections on Windows. Mozilla has quietly made the transition to Firefox on Windows easy with a one-click process that is not officially available to anyone but Microsoft. This one-click action doesn’t seem to work in the Microsoft Store version of Firefox. This means that Mozilla either avoided posting the workaround version of Firefox, or Microsoft rejected it from the Microsoft Store and the company had to remove the default browser workaround. In the meantime, let’s not forget that Microsoft has made the process of setting the default browser in Windows 11 difficult.

Firefox is now available in the Microsoft Store for both Windows 10 and Windows 11.
