    Default Change default browser from Twitter?

    TItle pretty much says it. Often when I hit a post in Twitter and try to open the shortened link Chrome will open. I'd rather have Firefox open instead as it seems to handle the shortened link faster. With Chrome about 15% of the links never open.

    Anybody know how to change the default browser from Twitter? I've looked in Twitter's setting's with no luck.

    I believe if you go in to settings>apps >scroll over to all and find chrome in the list, tap on it >force stop it >clear all the cache and data off the app. The next time you open a link, it should ask which app you want to open it with, check Firefox and always. Should look like the picture below

    You don't need to go that far. You only need to Clear Defaults, not cache or data, under Settings/Apps/Chrome.
