Making PM default browser on Debian

Unread postby loxodont » Tue, 09 Oct 2018, 19:51

There's a question on the german language board about making (and keeping) Pale Moon the default browser on Debian (stable)
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=20624

berni says he installed Pale Moon deb package and set it to default browser when asked, but it seems to switch back to Firefox somehow ...
I never used Debian and don't know the mentioned terminal commands, so can anyone here help with this?
I'll translate it then to the original post.
thx

Possibly he may have to set it as the default browser in the desktop environment's settings, or as the default "x-www-browser" in the Debian alternatives system (galternatives is a nice GUI for this; KDE users can use kalternatives)
