Brave is still the default browser for some apps after uninstalling it

They will state “failed to execute default Web Browser. Failed to execute child process brave (no such file or directory).” I want firefox as my default browser for everything and I want brave gone.

Which GUI are you using ?

i am using XFCE

This may help

Thank you

Have you (re)set the default browser?

xfce settings - default applications

a sure way to get there:
in a terminal:
LANG=C xfce4-settings-manager
go to System / Default Applications

it is gone if you uninstalled it - but settings in your $HOME will not be changed/touched by that

not by anything that is installed or uninstalled

I wrote a tiny script to set the system wide browser
