    Have a Mac last 5 years; always used Safari. Previous 20 yrs PC user so not all together with the Mac. Want to switch to Firefox but downloads direct me to App Store where I search Firefox and nothing comes up. What gives?

    Original problem - got the download part; message sez it wants it opened in App Store - App Store doesn't recognize or pull up Firefox

    Go to this screen in System Preferences and change the bottom setting to match mine, then it will let you install the app.
