Code:
$ xdg-settings get default-web-browser
chromium-browser-chromium.desktop
$ locate chromium-browser-chromium.desktop
/usr/share/applications/chromium-browser-chromium.desktop #Notice the filename and how the more sensible chromium-browser.desktop does not exist.
$ ls /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop
/usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop
$ xdg-settings set default-web-browser firefox.desktop
$ xdg-settings get default-web-browser
firefox.desktop

Which desktop do you use ?

KDE, Gnome or something else ?

P.S.: before you can use the browser, you have to install it.
