Default [Q] Chrome for Android thinks Wikipedia is installed - it's not

Ok, so recently I've noticed that my chrome browser for android on my new OPO seems to think that Wikipedia is installed when it's not. It's never been installed on my OPO, and it's not installed on any of my other android devices (Nexus 7 and SGSII), although the problem appears on those devices too. I'm not sure if it happened before I got the OPO, but it may have and I just didn't notice.

So I click on a link for Wikipedia and instead of opening the app, it just redirects me to the play store to install it. It's very annoying. The same thing appears to happen with IMDB (same situation - no app installed, never has been) ...

Any thoughts on how to fix?

Thanks!

Settings -> Apps -> All (Swipe right) -> Launch by default, clear defaults. See if the problem still happens. If it does, try downloading https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...om.chrome.beta and see if the problems still occurs.

Ok, not seeing the "launch by default" I tried resetting all app preferences (and was asked whether I wanted to use trebuchet or nova launcher when I pushed the home button, suggesting it cleared that preference at least). Still no dice.

Problem also displays on Chrome Beta
