After I installed Google Chrome on my work laptop, Pidgin links open with Chrome even though Firefox is set as my default browser. Pidgin is using
sensible-browser to open links. How can I get
sensible-browser to use the default browser?
I found a couple of posts about similar problems here and here but the solutions seemed to be "run a bunch of random commands and one of them might possibly fix the issue". I need to understand what the underlying problem is before I can take any steps to fix it.
