    Default Default Browser won't set

    When I click on a url in an email or anything else, I get a popup that lists my browsers (browser and chrome), so I click on either chrome or the browser and click Always to set it as the default for that type of action. The next time I click on the same url, I have to go through the same process all over again.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to set the default browser?

    You can go to app settings, then either the "browser", or Chrome. From either, you can clear defaults, then choose your preferred default browser. You could even disable one if you like.

    Default Re: Default Browser won't set

    When I go into the All Settings > Applications and look at either Browser or Chrome, the Clear Default button is grayed out. So every time that I click on anything that takes me to a web page, I have to choose which browser I want even if I have chosen a browser previously and clicked on Always.

    Setting the default browser is not working on my LGOG, which is Stock, non-rooted, not unlocked and on AT&T.

    I have used Android for a couple of years and know that this behavior of asking which browser I want to use even when I have selected one and clicked always is not normal.

    Default Re: Default Browser won't set

    On my Sprint Optimus G, I simply disabled Browser, and left Chrome enabled as the previous poster suggested. That does what I wanted. As long as you don't have a need for one of them, this should do the job. If there is ever something I need to use something other than Chrome for, I will just go in and enable Browser.

    Since the Clear Defaults is grayed out, it sounds like for some reason the default is never getting set for you.
