There will be a default selected in gnome-session, that can be changed
by user action. Without a session-wide default (any session manager can
set one, of course) a random choice (possibly alphabetical) is used.

Maybe 2.32, but it won’t be uploaded anyway, so that will be 3.0 to have
the GUI to configure that default.

We are used to have much more terrible breakage in testing/unstable
right after a release. If our concerns are now bugs wrt. setting the
default browser, it must mean we are doing *great* :)
