I'm not sure how, but some app is changing the file associations on my machine automatically. It is becoming very frustrating. Is there a way I can track what application is doing this?
What makes it really strange is that I don't use these 'newly defaulted' applications. For example, I never use Safari, but somehow it is set as my default browser. So I set Chrome as my default browser and a day later, the same thing happens.
I find that the file association on my media is changing as well to an esoteric video editing software which I don't use.
How can I go about figure out what's going on? I just figured maybe when the file association is changed it is logged somewhere. I took a look at
/var/log/system.log but didn't see anything that could help me.
