        Whenever I do a search from the lower-left Search field next to the Start button on the Taskbar, and click on a link in the Flyout, it opens in Legacy Edge.
        I have tried to uninstall Legacy Edge in Apps & Features, but the ‘Uninstall” button is non-funtional. See attachment, which is a screenshot of my Edges in Apps & Features.

        I ordinarily search via Firefox and I want searches from that browser to open there, but sometimes I use the Search field next to the Start button in the Taskbar, and I believe these links are forced to open in a MS browser, which for me, right now, means opening in the Legacy Edge browser.

        So, how do I get rid of the Legacy Edge browser so that the links in the Flyout will open in Beta Edge?

        I understand that Legacy Edge is going to disappear in March, 2021, but that doesn’t solve the problem right now.

        Winaero has that answer in the “Uninstall and remove the Edge legacy browser (EdgeHTML)” section:
