I have had good luck with perl-file-mimeinfo

But you can also try xdg-utils-mimeo and mimeo .

install them both (from the aur i believe)  and it seems to work even better than perl-file-mimeinfo

just my two cents.

yaourt -S xdg-utils-mimeo mimeo

they only take a minute to build and will save a lot of headaches.

Thank you, LizziAS  :)
That is really good info, should solve all problems if followed correctly.
So from what I read on wiki you need to configure xdg-open to work properly.
You do not need to change .bashrc or any other variable (/etc/environment, etc/profile) to point to a specific browser.

xdg-open uses perl-file-mimeinfo as a fallback ("generic") method if no desktop environment is detected.

By "no desktop" they mean i3, openbox etc... But I will say I had a same problem on Gnome not too long ago.
