Pale: binary operator expected

After having uninstalled palemoon from my system I keep getting these messages:

I chose to remove all dependencies when uninstalling Palemoon, using pamac. However, something is stuck. Any idea how to fix this?

If you uninstalled Pale Moon from your system you probably don’t need the .desktop file ~/.local/share/applications/userapp-Pale Moon.desktop.

Also, to set a different browser as the default one in your system, open the file ~/.profile and set in in the line

export BROWSER=/usr/bin/your_browser

replacing the reference to Pale Moon in this line.
