Default How do I change browser back to default

when i used to pick a site a choice came up that said Browser as one choice and Opera for the other. I have since added firefox and decided to save it as my default. Turns out it doesn't seem to help my movie situation (i did download flash from adobe archives) and firefox also screws up my yahoo main page.

I want to be able to have the choice of the three browsers again and not have it on default but i can't find anything anywhere that looks like i can change it.

I want to be able to use the one that's just labeled Browser rather than Opera.

Where do I go to change this?

Default

Settings, app manager, clear defaults on the present default browser.

Then, click a link, for example in email, and you'll get the dialog back to choose a new default.

That's standard Android, let me know if it gives trouble on your device though.

Turns out after i turned the tablet off and on it went back to showing the 3 choices for browser. i guess this is solved unless it doesn't work on all sites which i won't know til i mess around with it.
