[xubuntu-users] Why does Firefox persist as default browser in some contexts...

...despite not being visibly set as default? For HTMLfiles in a volume, 
Chrome opens by default. Yet particularly from applications when opening 
HTML help, for example, they all-too-often do so in Firefox.

  * I have Chrome set as the webbrowser in Preferred Applications.
  * There are zero references to Firefox (nor Mozilla, for that matter)
    to be found in the Mime Type Editor.
  * 'exo-open --launch WebBrowser' launches Chrome
  * 'update-alternatives' shows Chrome as the "auto mode" default,
    although there's a manual mode available (not tried that yet)
  * There are no in-app preferences for default browsers in the apps

What am I missing?
