It seems to be impossible to change default browser if Google Chrome is chosen to be so.
How does one make a browser default in Linux Mint 13 when another one like GChrome imposes itself?

Re-install the browser you want to be default. Then open it, it should ask you to set it as default browser. Sorry this is from memory I don't use Mint anymore

Not sure that will do the trick. I just installed latest Opera RC and it didn't ask me if i wanted it to be default or not but i'll try to uninstall/reinstall Firefox to see if that works out. Thanks!

Cameron, i just had LinuxMint re-install the program and was able to set as default again and guess what?! It worked! :)

Thank you for your intervention!
