    Default Verizon Galaxy Note 3 - Remember browser settings won't stick.

    Whenever I open a link or something it gives me the option to select with browser to use then you can make it the default browser. I always make chrome the default. Well it never remembers the settings unlike every other Android phone I have. It promps for me to choose which browser everytime I open up something in the web. Does anyone else have this problem?

    Mine is doing the same. It won't keep the default I choose.

    Hmm well this can't be good. Wonder what the deal is. Are you rooted or no?

    If you open up task manager > clear defaults and clear that on a regular basis when you are clearing up RAM... it will automatically ask you each time if you want to open something as a default.

    I've got the same problem. Clearing defaults seems to be the exactly opposite of what's needed. So, is there a solution?

    I'm saying if you clear stuff on a regular basis... then it will ask you each time... Please re - read the post.

    Are you selecting the Samsung browser or a third party browser? It does not keep chrome selected as default for me; I have to select it every time I open a link. However, if I choose Samsung and click it as default it remembers every time until I remove the defaults.

    Chrome never sticks yet every other Samsung phone I've ever had this is never a problem. Man it's really annoying.

    is the play store recently updating any of the browsers? if so, then it will always ask you to choose a default web browser. I have xscope, stock, chrome, firefox, and dolphin, and when ever one updates, i get the option to choose a default browser, also when you remove a browser, it comes up with this pop up message.

    I thought of that to. However if I go to Google Now and search something and then click a link it will ask what browser to open it in. Either Samsung or Chrome. So then I'll select Chrome and tell it to remember.

    Afterwards I'll do another search... Moments later and select another link and it will ask again.

    It doesn't do this every time, but it does still ask more than it should.

    Navigation used to do that on my Galaxy S 3 as well. It would choose not to remember Google Maps like it was trying to push me into using Verizon Navigator.

    Ok another thing could be, it might do that on different websites. If you search for msn news, it may ask you to choose a web browser for the link. So in the future msn news shall work with the chosen web browser. But if you search for superman and get directed to supermanhomepage.com, it will ask you to choose a web browser to access the website, but in the future it shouldnt, since it is saved as the web browser to use for that website.

    It should be like this, in theory but i have had it happen when i search for a video in google amd every time i choose the link to youtube, it asks me to choose what app to use. But once i chose it, that video will open on the desire app. But a different video wull ask me again.

    I use the Chrome beta and I haven't had any issues with my Note 3 remembering my default browser.

    I am having a similar issue but with photo attachments in the Hangouts app. It never remembers my 'Complete action using' choice even when i choose always. I think I've been seeing this in another app as well but can't remember which. I'll post again when I figure it out.

    When I open a link from another app it asks me which asp I want to open it with, asks every time or just once thrn tells me how to clear defaults. It's annoying, especially when I'm on Reddit.

    This is also happening to me, actually any apps can't remember settings. this happens after the OTA kitkat 4.4 update.
