Ubuntu – Skype opening links in wrong browser


I have Google Chrome set as my default browser in 17.10 using the settings app and everything seems to behave properly except Skype, which insists on opening every clicked link in Firefox.

xdg-mime shows Chrome,
/etc/alternatives shows Chrome,
mimeapps.list shows Chrome.

Is there anywhere else I can check?

I uninstalled the version that came from the "Ubuntu Software" app and downloaded the .deb directly from skype.com. Although it's the same version number, this does not have the link problem.
