When I start Jupyter Lab or Notebook from the terminal, Azure Data Studio opens the auto-redirect HTML file instead of Firefox.

Is there a way to correct this behavior? I'm experiencing this issue on Ubuntu 18.04 on my personal computer, but do not see this behavior on my work computer, which is a Macbook Pro. Currently running Azure Data Studio 1.5.4.

jupyter                   1.0.0 
jupyter_client            5.2.4  
jupyter_console           6.0.0 
jupyter_core              4.4.0 
jupyterlab                0.35.3
jupyterlab_launcher       0.13.1
jupyterlab_server         0.2.0 

EDIT: After starting the HTML in ADS, this is the output I see in the terminal:

[main 11:17:33 PM] update#setState idle
bash: cannot set terminal process group (-1): Inappropriate ioctl for device
bash: no job control in this shell

Changing the file ~/.config/mimeapps.list with settings to text/html=firefox.desktop fixed the issue. This issue is related to this one where other solutions are also provided (set a default browser for Jupyter).
