[SOLVED]Chromium/Google Chrome keeps nagging about not being the default browser

Configuring x-www-browser in Alternatives, XDG’s default-web-browser and Lubuntu’s default internet browser application in Session Settings is not enough. Turns out Chrome looks at /etc/xdg/xdg-Lubuntu/mimeapps.list and you have to edit it as sudo and replace the instances of the “firefox” string with your browser of choice.

Hope I’ve been of some help.

Thank you. I have been using Quite RSS and its default was always going to Firefink (ha ha) even tho’ I wanted Google Chrome. It FINALLY works right. Much appreciated. :+1::+1::+1:
