Live Preview of Brackets was working fine for me, 2 days ago the live preview link i.e. "file:///opt/brackets/www/LiveDevelopment/launch.html" got somehow stuck with chrome. Whenever I open a chrome, this link comes. New Tab is working fine. And if I click on a hyper link from other software which opens a chrome tab will also open the above live link. I have tried purging brackets and chrome both and reinstalling again, deleting any config settings for both of them still the issue exist. It has somehow made some setting into the environment that is not getting removed when I uninstall these software. After installing and reinstalling brackets a couple of time the live preview has also stopped working.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Open Chrome
  2. Click on some link from other software
  3. Chrome opens with the live link not the required one

Expected behavior: [What you expected to happen]

Ubuntu 16.04.01 LTS
