Windows 10 dropped this week with a promise of a free upgrade for anyone using Windows 7 or 8, but it turns out there’s a fly in that ointment. If you previously used Chrome or Firefox as your browser of choice, that choice is wiped away with the Windows 10 upgrade. Instead of new versions of Chrome or Firefox, you get Microsoft Edge as your default selection. This is the kind of maneuver that could land Microsoft in hot water with the EU, which has previously mandated that the Redmond-based company must offer a selection of alternative browsers to its own Internet Explorer when users first set up a Windows machine.

Mozilla has taken exception to this new policy and issued an open letter to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, as well as a new tutorial on how to restore your original browser preferences using Windows 10. According to Mozilla’s CEO, Chris Beard, the non-profit foundation has known about Microsoft’s personal preference overrides for months and has previously attempted to work with the company to reach some sort of solution. His letter states that this conversation “didn’t result in any meaningful progress.” Mozilla also claims that it now takes more than twice the number of mouse clicks and additional technical sophistication to change default settings in Windows 10 as compared to Windows 7.
