Package: josm
Version: 0.0.svn5759+dfsg1-1
Severity: normal

Dear maintainer,
my DE is Gnome, and my default browser is Iceweasel.

$ update-alternatives --display x-www-browser 
x-www-browser - manual mode
  link currently points to /usr/bin/iceweasel
/usr/bin/chromium - priority 40
/usr/bin/epiphany-browser - priority 85
  slave x-www-browser.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/epiphany-browser.1.gz
/usr/bin/iceweasel - priority 70
  slave x-www-browser.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/iceweasel.1.gz
Current 'best' version is '/usr/bin/epiphany-browser'.

Iceweasel is the default browser also in Gnome (see the attached screenshot).

As you can see here[1], JOSM should use gnome-open to run a web browser;
this command opens the web page by using Iceweasel:
$ gnome-open http://www.debian.org

So, I can't understand why JOSM runs Web (Epiphany) instead of Iceweasel.

Best regards,
