After having installed a few browsers in crostini i noticed that links now open in firefox - eg. when clicking on a link in Geary.

To fix this, this is what you wanna do:

Popup a crostini console and type:


xdg-settings set default-web-browser garcon_host_browser.desktop

sudo xdg-settings set default-web-browser garcon_host_browser.desktop
