"epiphany.desktop" as default app for "*.html" on LMDE

Bug Description

In LMDE the installed Internet browser is "firefox", but in "/usr/share/applications/defaults.list", "/usr/share/linuxmint/adjustments/gnome/defaults.list" and "/etc/gnome/defaults.list" the default browser for some mime-type is "epiphany".

As "epiphany" is not installed by default, "html" files are randomly opened with any of the associated mime-type applications ("thunderbird" in my case), and this is annoying.

This can be overridden replacing all "epiphany.desktop" entries to "firefox.desktop" in all "defaults.list".

Update:
This is also applicable to:
/usr/share/applications/mimeapps.list
