$xdg-open folderA/
was opening folderA/ in firefox, so I added "application/x-directory=Thunar-folder-handler.desktop;" to defaults. Now

$xdg-open folderA/
opens the folderA in thunar,

but the weird thing is, the moment I close thunar, firefox fires up and opens the folderA once again

any ideas?
