https://git.lxde.org/gitweb/?p=debian/lxpanel.git;a=blob;f=debian/desktop/lxde-x-www-browser.desktop

But I wonder whether that .desktop makes sense. Wouldn't users be
better served by just having a Firefox ESR .desktop instead? They
would know what it is and could delete it if they don't need it.

LXDE doesn't ship with any tool that allows customizing what
x-www-browser is, right? I don't see that LXDE .desktop as being very
useful in practice.
