I recently installed Lubuntu 19.04 (LXQt) and I want to change the default browser from Firefox to Google Chrome. However, even though I set Chrome as the default browser in the settings, Firefox still remains the default whenever I try to open html files from my computer (or click on any links).
I'm not sure why the OS is not listening to my instructions. I've set chrome as the default browser in both the "Session Settings" menu, and the "update-alternatives." I've even changed it manually in
/usr/share/applications/defaults.list, and it still won't change. No matter what I do, Firefox remains the default browser.
Any idea what's going on ?
PS: I know I could probably solve the problem by removing Firefox, but I don't want to do that. I want to keep both browsers installed, just have Chrome be the default.
