Yesterday I installed a second browser (Chromium) along my choice browser (Firefox) for a job related task which repeats, so Chromium should stay for a little while.
After work I opened a link from my password manager and was shocked that Chromium would open, as I had not set it to be the default browser, and I had not realized that installing a new browser would change the default.
So I went to the Budgie Control Center under Default Applications, where I thought I could select my default browser. And while all other settings for default application are editable (Files, E-Mail, Calendar, Music, Video, Photos), the entry for Web at the top is disabled.
I thought that maybe it needed a reboot and waited until today, but even after a reboot the field stays disabled:
There’s probably a way to do the same thing in a configuration file. Or maybe somebody knows why the field is disabled. I would prefer not to uninstall Chromium just yet.
