Description Martin Krajnak 2018-07-12 14:26:39 UTC
Description of problem:
I have 2 browsers installed Chrome and Firefox, if  I click on http link in libreoffice or hexchat, there is an xdg-open window asking which browser the link should be opened. This is annoying since the dialog is small and sometimes it remains hidden under some window somewhere in whole desktop, and there is no option like remember the selection or something similar.
So it would be nice if flatpaks just pick up the default browser. I've tested the non-flatpak app and they are picking the default browser without problems, although I am not 100% sure that this is caused by flatpak.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have a http link inside libreoffice(flatpak) document or hexchat
2.Ctrl + Click the link in LO, Click the link in hexchat

Actual results:
Dialog window appears and you have to pick the browser, always, for every link

Expected results:
The link should be opened in the default browser
