How do I disable Samsung Internet?
In App Settings, the disable button is ghosted.
Using "Force Stop" is not permanent.
This app starts up frequently on its own and is annoying.
Firefox is set as my default browser.
Phone is Galaxy S10 SM-G973U

You can uninstall it with adb:
Code:
adb shell pm.uninstall -k --user 0 com.sec.android.app.sbrowser
For disabling it enter:
Code:
adb shell pm disable com.sec.android.app.sbrowser

And what does the uninstall command do?
You can reinstall the browser via play or galaxy store.
