    Samsung Galaxy Tab 3
    Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, Android 5.0.2

    When I power down my tablet and restart it later, SOME of the apps I have chosen to launch by default gets forgotten, and I have to choose the app to launch, select Always, and then the proper app launches. I have tried (Several times) going into settings and reset the defaults on the proper app, but the problem always comes back.

    As an example, I am using Chrome and I tap on a link to take me to Flickr, and the dialog box appears asking me do I want to use Chrome of the Flickr app, or some other Browser. I choose Chrome (yes, I want Chrome in this case, but it doesn't matter if I choose something else, the same problem happens), I select Always, and then the link opens in Chrome as I requested. After re-start in the tablet, my choice has been forgotten and I have to go through the process again.

    And it only happens for some apps and not others.

    How do I fix this?

    I have no idea. I have the same tablet and haven't experienced that problem.
