..." does nonsense, sets browser to Thunderbird and breaks xdg-open on URLs
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:58.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/58.0 Build ID: 20170929100122 Steps to reproduce: 1. Go to about:preferences#general 2. Click "Make Default..." Actual results: xdg-open on URLs is now broken (terminates without anything happening, nothing opens), gnome-shell settings show that "Thunderbird" is set in "Default Applications" for "Web" Expected results: Nightly is correctly set as web browser for opening URLs
Firefox version is 58, which was unavailable from the Version dropdown for some reason.
I forgot to mention this, but I have seen this bug sporadically for a really long time probably going back to Firefox 35 or something. I have only now had a screen recorder installed of which I knew how to use it, so that I could record it happening live. Therefore, it's probably not a recent regression if that info helps in any way with locating the underlying issue.

not sure what gnome does or expects but "Make Default..." does work (with any WM) https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1427383
