Reset the defaults in mimer when choosing the browser.
You can find this option in the pulley menu after choosing the browser.

Hope that helps.

Thanks llelectronics for taking the time to respond.
The behaviour after resetting the defaults in the mimer app was:
- intially with webcat installed the clicked link opened successfully in webcat, with or without the application being opened prior to clicking
- so I tried uninstalling webcat, and after completing the uninstall and rebooting the phone nothing happens when a link is clicked. The default browser is neither opened, or brought to the foreground, and the link is not opened anywhere.
Is there a way to manually edit the required files to remove webcat as the default, without using the mimer app, as links do not open if the application is already open with mimer.
Thanks again for taking the time to help,
Justin.

I guess llelectronic knows better so see my answer as 'it may be the same but definitely not worsen' try.

I asked him just a few posts earlier how to reset the default web browser.

So install webcat, go to command line and issue:
Code:
harbour-webcat --reset-default
as normal user (there should be no need for devel-su).

Hi Peterleinchen,
That command has worked. Behaviour on clicking links is back to normal. Such a relief - so much easier then a system reinstall!
Thanks to both you and llelectronics for taking the time to help. It is very much appreciated.
Justin.
