|mparillo: This may be old hat, but the path to the browser is set in the first directory from $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS with a kdeglobals file. The setting is [ General ] BrowserApplication=xxx.desktop where xxx is your browser.
|mparillo: If that looks like it should, then you might test on a Neon liveUSB session and see if you get the same behavior there. $0.02.
|Thank you. I am on Arch on this machine, which works and for it, I see it expand and when I try to cd to it I get: bash: cd: /home/mparillo/.config/kdedefaults:/etc/xdg: No such file or directory
|I will test on Kubuntu when I can put this aside again.
|Continuing on Kubuntu. There I can echo $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS and the first directory in the colon-separated list is: /home/mparillo/.config/kdedefaults As you would have expected, I can see a file kdeglobals, but the only things there relate to Breeze. And the only entry under [General] is ColorScheme=BreezeLight which is even more interesting because in System Settings > Appearance > Global Theme I have set to Breeze Twilight.
|The last entry in the $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS variable is /usr/share/kubuntu-default-settings/kf5-settings and there in kdeglobals under [General] I see: BrowserApplication=firefox_firefox.desktop
|Note that removing the offending line from /usr/share/kubuntu-default-settings/kf5-settings requires sudo.
|I wonder if future upgrades to KDE Frameworks will over-write /usr/share/kubuntu-default-settings/kf5-settings
|mparillo: no as that is from kubuntu-settings
