I have not tested in details myself, but with a fast quick code check,
it looks like GIMP would use the standard method (through glib) to get
the user-defined browser.
Could you tell me what is the result to these 3 commands:
$ xdg-mime query default text/html
$ xdg-mime query default x-scheme-handler/http
$ xdg-mime query default x-scheme-handler/https
It should be the desktop file for the desired application (for
instance "firefox.desktop" if you want Firefox).
If it isn't, please set it with the following commands:
$ xdg-mime default firefox.desktop x-scheme-handler/http
$ xdg-mime default firefox.desktop x-scheme-handler/https
$ xdg-mime default firefox.desktop text/html
If you already had the right settings, but the expected browser is
still not the one to be loaded, then there is probably indeed a
problem in GIMP code.
I will wait for the verification. :-)
Thank you very much.
