    1) I am no longer allowed to be without a default browser app. I have 3 different browsers that I like to select based on the type of site I'm going to. In Lollipop I could select the appropriate browser and "Just Once" to not set a default. Is there any way to enable "just once" kind of behavior in Marshmallow?

    2) In the IMDB app I chose to share by gmail. Now I can ONLY share by gmail and am no longer presented with an option. How can I make it let me choose the sharing mechanism each time?

    3) In the app settings for IMDB I have it set to use the IMDB app to go to supported URLs. However if someone texts me an imdb hyperlink, it opens in my (no permanently default) browser app, not IMDB. What else to I need to do to open imdb links in the imdb app?

    I have to say, Marshmallow is quite the disappointment. There's not even one thing that I would consider improved over Lollipop, and numerous things (like the above) that make me wish I could revert to Lollipop. At any rate, thanks for any advice on the above issues.

    EDIT: poor word choices

    I am so glad to see that someone else is having these same issues. Not glad that they are happening obviously.

    1. Defaults no longer give option to choose "just once" or "always".
    2. When I deleted the defaults associated to the app that keeps opening a website link, the same app keeps opening with no option between the two previous apps.

    I am so frustrated like you and I hope there is a fix soon!
