    Default KDE Plasma. Goggle Chrome doesn't think it's my default browser, Complains not shut down cleanly .

    When I open Chrome it says it's not my default browser. I've set it as the default browser in KDE Desktop Setting Applications.
    It also says it's not shut down cleanly and asks to restore if I've rebooted even though I've shut Chrome down cleanly.
    What can I do to resolve this behavior?

    I'm not seeing this.

    Could you try deleting the folders
    .cache/google-chrome/
    .config/google-chrome/

    That should have chrome launch empty and if you use a google account, you would need to login and let it sync

    Was your TW install clean and was /home formatted or a keepover

    It's been consistent across several clean installs.
    Nothing brought over from several installs. The most recent is today.
    If I go into Chrome settings Chrome says it's not the default browser.
    When I tell to to become the default browser nothing happens.

    I'll rather not delete those files as I have all my ad blocking , cookie blocking and white listed sites configured and that will kill all the work Iv'e done on that today if I remove those files.

    OK
    In chrome settings I see the same as you describe

    In kde settings I just set chrome to default ( as firefox was set there )

    After changing the kde setting from FF to Chrome
    Once I close chrome and re-launch it
    It asks with pop out 'Chrome is not currently default, do you want Chrome default...'
    I say Yes
    But in Chrome settings it is not default
    In kde Chrome is set to default still

    So I'd say report it to Google

    OK will report upstream then..

    Works as expected on 13.2 and 13.1
    Tumbleweed and Plasma is a different story.
    Wonder if anyone running Gnome sees this?

    Thanks.

    I just checked on a netbook running Mint 13
    Same version of Chrome
    Chrome is set as default in Mate settings
    But Chrome settings reports: Google Chrome cannot determine or set the default browser.

    I wonder if Chromium users are seeing this too?

    I just upgraded from 13.2 to Tumbleweed, and this bug affects all browsers, not just Chrome. I had Firefox set as default in 13.2, but no matter what browser I set as default in the system settings, external links still open in Firefox, so something isn't getting updated somewhere.

    This also happens in chromium. It is the same on my Arch install as well. Chromium is what will come up by default, but it doesn't think so. Same behavior in Chrome when I tried it out on Arch.
