Setting really default browser

When Chrome or Chromium spontaneously becomes your default browser and all normal ways in GUI say that it isn't, then run:

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

and select whatever you want, e.g.:

There are 2 choices for the alternative x-www-browser (providing /usr/bin/x-www-browser).

  Selection    Path                       Priority   Status
------------------------------------------------------------
* 0            /usr/bin/chromium-browser   40        auto mode
  1            /usr/bin/chromium-browser   40        manual mode
  2            /usr/bin/firefox            40        manual mode

So many ways to do one thing... why?
