Reading on the web, I learned that
~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list exists. And I found the
following in mine:
# fgrep -i firefox ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
This, despite I have used the GUI "System settings / Details / Default
Applications". That said, I changed all reference of "firefox" for
"google-chrome" and then logged out/ logged in, to no vail. Firefox
remains the default browser when I click on a link displayed on a PDF
document, rendered by evince. So this is problably not the problem.
That said, shouldn't 'System settings' update the file anyway, in case
it is being used by some other application?
