Wrong browser when automatically reporting a crash

To possibly answer my own question I noticed that
update-alternatives --get-selections
gnome-www-browser              auto     /usr/bin/chromium-browser
x-www-browser                  auto     /usr/bin/chromium-browser
so possibly an update to chromium has hijacked the settings.  I have
reset this ack to ff with
sudo update-alternatives --config gnome-www-browser
sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser

Hopefully that will sort it, I have to wait for a crash to find out.
