Default Firefox isn't default browser!

I've tried different browsers and have been using Advant. I read where Mozilla's Firefox is a secure browser to use and so I went and downloaded and installed it. When it came up, it did not ask if I wanted it to be the default browser and so I went into settings to make it that and it already said it was (probably from an earlier download). When I click onto any desktop icons, the Advant browser still comes up. I decided to uninstall the Advant and when I did, clicking onto any desktop icon does not open Firefox, but rather it opens the printer options window. So I had to download and reinstall Advant just to get the desktop icons to work. Any idea of what is going on here and more importantly, how can I fix it?

Thanks in advance for your help!
