The new update took all day on one of my machines. Firefox disappeared on this one, Edge has taken over, and Bing is the default search engine again.

This only happened on one of my computers. Any clues about this?

No.  But I would not be surprised if your Firefox user profile is still present and reinstalling Firefox will return matters to normal.

 

Edge is what will always take over if your default browser is removed for any reason.  It's a simple matter to reinstall Firefox and update your default apps settings.  Trying to figure out the why, at this juncture, is not going to get you the result you want and, in all likelihood, is not something you could have prevented unless your Firefox version was grossly out of date.
