    Title: /bug is launching Chrome instead of Firefox
    Reproduction Rate:100%
    Blocker?No
    Details: Firefox is my default browser, if you're going to suck up all my spare system resources by launching a web browser at least use my default one, though really I'd rather you just stuck the data you needed in my clipboard and didn't attempt to do anything else at all.
    Steps to Reproduce:Type /bug into the chat window
    User Specs:
    OS: Linux 4.4 Fedora 23 64bit
    CPU: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor (4) System RAM: 7982
    GPU: GeForce GTX 760/PCIe/SSE2 GPU RAM: 1024
    SotA.EarlyAccess.Linux.64.396.Date.03.31.16

    My system grinds to a halt for several minutes after typing /bug - long enough that I get disconnected from both Steam and SotA with network timeouts while waiting for anything in the UI to respond.

    I have since found one other game which launches links in Chrome, though Steam and everything else use Firefox as intended, so I'm thinking there's some obscure setting somewhere that SotA and this other game are finding and nothing else is. If you have any clues as to what that may be let me know and I'll investigate. However I would still appreciate an option to not attempt to launch any browser while I'm in the middle of playing a game.
