Well I'll go on the record as niether a firefox user OR gnome (chrome/ium
& xfce), and to be honest, what tv station or other sporting event for that
matter doesn't do the same ? So its okay there ? because I pay for a ticket
to watch a show/game, besides defaults are there for functionality OOB NOT
the gospel lordy...

Biased why because I work on Firefox? I work on a lot of Open Source

Thinking and knowing what the best experience for your users is two
different things. I would bet money if you surveyed fedora users they would
pick Firefox and Gnome.
Personally I prefer data over knee jerk reactions because honestly this is
what I see going on. I don't see a demand from users that want a different
default I see developers who want to choose a different default based on
their own beliefs.
If your users want something other than Firefox then give it to them but I
don't see that argument being made.
