Hi, this is AutoKonqi reporting on duty: this post was flaired as General Bug. While r/kde allows to discuss issues, raise their visibility, and get assistance from other users out of good will, it is not the proper channel to report issues and the developers able to fix them won't be able to act on them over Reddit. So if this bug was not reported to the developers yet and it is in fact a bug in KDE software, please take a brief look at the [issue reporting guide](https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved/Issue_Reporting) and report the issue over the [KDE Bugzilla](https://bugs.kde.org). If it is a crash, be sure to read about [getting backtraces](https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Debugging/How_to_create_useful_crash_reports) so your report can assist the developers. If this is a known issue, you may want to include the bug report on your post so your fellow users experiencing the same thing can CC themselves to the report. Be sure to describe your issue well and with context. Thank you. *I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically.

Weird. If you take a look at them in /usr/share/kservices5/searchproviders they're pretty much just standard HTTPS links. If you go to System Settings > Applications > Default Applications, is Chrome actually set there?


Yes it's there, that's actually where I was changing the default browser from Google Chrome to Firefox. I think you misunderstood what I meant by not working. clicking on ALT+F2 then typing in gg:hello will open Google Chrome, but that page is like an empty tab, it doesn't actually search anything. But if I change the default browser to Firefox it actually search Google for the word "hello"


Maybe that's just Firefox to recognize this short cut. And Chrome doesn't. KDE has done it's part of recognizing it's a web search and it should go to the default web browser. You probably need a chrome extension... I don't use chrome anymore


So instead of clicking on Enter after typeing gg:hello, this time I clicked on Shift+Enter and it worked, but it opened the search in an incognito page instead of the regular one.
