When ever I press the web link of the Weather app, the dialog offers two choices for the application to open the link with: Browser and Webcat. However Webcat has been removed from my device and obviously it shouldn't be available as a choice.

I assume you have a file left over by webcat which was not removed by package removal:

.local/share/applications/harbour-webcat-open-url.desktop

@ljo Thanks! Removing that file removed the Webcat option from the "open link" dialog, but the dialog still appeared woth two options: Browser and an empty line. I ended up removing also mimeinfo.cache and open-url.desktop from the same folder. Now the link is opened in default Browser without any dialogs. I hope nothing broke :)
