I recently installed Eclipse 2020.03 and installed Eclipse Web Developer Tools. But for some reason my JavaScript files open in an external browser (firefox). The attached image shows the installed Eclipse Web Developer Tools.

I appreciate any help to figure out how to get .js files to load in the editor.

You've got a curious mix of contents from 2020-03 and 2020-06. In 2020-06, JavaScript files are meant to be edited in the Generic Text Editor. See bug 564496, https://bugs.eclipse.org/564496 .
