Default [Q] Default Application Selection Won't Stick

I'm new to this forum as I recently purchased a T-Mobile S4.I have Googled and searched like crazy and I can't find an answer to this problem.

When I encounter a link, or anything else that brings up the Application Selection dialog, I pick out the application that I would like to use as the default, and then select "always". Android responds with a message about how to clear my selection later on... But it doesn't remember the selection. If I pick another link, I have to go through it all again.

I've cleared all defaults, checked the one I'm trying, used the default app picker, tried the Xposed Xposed framework... I'm out of ideas. I really want to set up my apps and move on.

I'm not a noob to Android. The phone is rooted, but on a stock room. TWRP is installed.

Any ideas?
