How do you change Proseries default browser from "e" to something reliable?

How does one change the default browser in Proseries from "e" to one that is reliable? Even Microsoft doesn't support "e" anymore. Remember, they have "Edge" now. Come on Intuit - get with the program!

You can't change the default browser for ProSeries.  I rarely even notice what browser PS uses...what are you doing in the program that opens a browser window?

So while ProSeries uses Internet Explorer (IE) in the background to run certain functionality, here is a Microsoft article on troubleshooting script errors.  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/308260/how-to-troubleshoot-script-errors-in-internet-explor...

Common interference like AV or other 3rd party applications can cause this, you can try temp disabling AV the next time you go to read one of the alerts, or excluding proseries and/or adding to trusted sites to see if that changes your experience.

or copy and paste the alert address from the IE address bar and open it in a different browser.

@Firehead  - I've wondered the same thing - thanks for asking.   Maybe someone from Intuit will read this and respond - hello AshleyatIntuit?.    I get frustrated trying to read Alerts with script errors always popping up.
