"file chooser portal'

I have had a lot of trouble with the environment not using my default file manager.  Various software applications often open up a file by displaying some sort of file manager window that is unfamiliar to me and seems to bypass Thunar.  There was some talk that it was a problem with the application itself or with the XORG or with the toolkit used.  I have gone around this problem from different sides, and it appears to boil down to the particular dialog set up for such purposes by the desktop environment.  In my case it appears to be Xfce.

I say this because of a discussion at https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xdg/xdg- … ote_813040  There appears some direction here as to where the problem originates.

Perhaps someone is interesting in this discussion and if a change can be made in Xfce to solve this confusing situation.
