Where does Firefox get its default file associations from?

I had a problem that downloaded JPG and PNG files were being opened with Google Chrome. I have now managed to set the file associations in Firefox, but I'm still left wondering: where on earth did the default association come from?!? At the OS level, I don't have *anything* set to open with Google Chrome. Where did Firefox get the idea that Google Chrome was the default from? (The attached screenshot it what my Applications settings in Firefox were set to while I had the problem.)

Opening downloaded files is delegated to the system. KDE has had issues with this in the past.

How is delegated to the system, though? I have checked file associations in the KDE File Associations GUI, and they are configured correctly. Dolphin, the KDE file manager, opens files in the correct programs. xdg-open opens files with the correct programs. Thunderbird opens attachments with the correct programs. Firefox is doing something different to everything else in what it opens downloads with.

(I am using openSUSE Tumbleweed with KDE.)
