Even after you set Edit->preferences->tools->browser to "firefox"???
BTW, what was the value before?

Anyway, the default browser Geany uses is "firefox", but Ubuntu has a
history of changing this default to something they want.  At some point
it was x-www-browser, not sure if they changed it again.  But if it *is*
x-www-browser, it can be configured (with update-alternatives) and may
have changed when you installed Chrome.
