Everything I open will open in this cretain of a browser called Epiphany. Discord, Thunderbird, etc.. all Links open a new instance or tab in Epiphany. I do want to open everything only in Firefox. I can't be the only one. How to mitigate this issue?


Go to System Settings > Applications > Default Tab. There you can set your default web browser, email client, text editor etc.

In some instances, the program you want to define as default does not appear on its category menu drop-down in System Settings > Applications > Default tab

Another way is to right click on a file with an extension (for a web browser, that would be a .html file), and set the program to be used in Properties.
