Description seventyeight 2014-10-13 11:48:43 UTC
It is not possible to change the available browser to chromium.  I can edit  in Settings > General > Browsers the Chrome arguments string to "-a chromium {URL}" then it works with the run button. But not with netbeans connector,  though the crx ist installed and activated. Even in the project properties > Run configuration, Chromium does not appear in the list of available browsers.

## Issue
Using NB Connector fails on Chromium 60.0.3112.78

## Expected Behavior
Pressing Shift+F6 opens browser window

## Actual Behavior
Dialog requesting DB Connector installation begins

## Steps to Reproduce
1. Be sure Chromium (not Chrome) is installed on system
2. Open single html page in a web project
3. Press Shift+F6
4. Click through dialog requesting install of NB connector (Go to Chrome Extensions Store [?])
5. Check notifications: "chrome could not be opened"

## Quick Fixes
In Options -> General -> Edit change the path of the `Chrome` entry to use `/usr/bin/chromium-browser` as the path to executable.

## Additional Comments
It appears the code responsible for this is hard-coded to use chrome and lacks the flexibility to set to Chromium.

You folks might want to try fixing this, or making sure the Ubuntu team is updated more regularly on your releases.

This is 2017. This bug was initially reported in 2014. Fixing a hard-coded value to a drop down's selection takes so very little time.

Would you like to hire me to fix it?
