    Issues changing default browser on android based LG Optimus V phone

    The default browser of my android based LG Optimus V phone was changed to Google Chrome from Mozilla. But when I start up the device for the next time, the default browser gets automatically changed to the previous one. Can you please help me with this?

    Hello friend,
    There may be some software regarding issue to must have to reset your phone and then try again.

    Remember, by performing a reset, all your data- settings, messages, apps, etc would be deleted.
    So backup up anything important.

    Follow these steps:
    - Go to 'Settings'.
    - Privacy.
    - 'Factory Data Reset'.
    - Fill in your id and password and confirm.
    - You can choose whether to delete SD card data or not.

    After the process is complete, your device would return to its out-of-the-box state or to its factory settings.

    Regards!

    Hi,
    The problem might be with the Android system so in order to get rid of this issue open the application drawer and then select the option as "Settings" in settings you will be able to find the settings of the Chrome and Mozilla under the Downloaded applications there you can clear the defaults once and then again open the browser and then add the settings there you will be able to change the settings of the device. There you will be able to select the option as to change the default browser and it will function properly.
    Hope this Helps.
