An error occurred while starting the browser

Posted on: August 14, 2017

When other applications try to open a new browser and navigate to a url sometimes we will get an error like “an error occurred while starting the browser”. This may be due to your default browser is not set properly.

To resolve this issue you have to change the default browser.

Debian based distributions

sudo update-alternatives –config x-www-browser
sudo update-alternatives –config gnome-www-browser
