How do I prevent my Kindle Fire’s Silk browser from suggesting I open links in other browsers?

I have other browsers installed on my Kindle Fire and when some pages don’t work on those browsers, I switch to the Silk browser. Silk browser is annoying whenever I click links because it gives me options to open up the links in the other browsers. This doesn’t make sense at all since I’m using the browser for a reason.

So does anyone know if there is a way to prevent this or an option to turn it off?

    When the pop-up comes up, there should be a check box to for using your selection as default, then select Silk browser and it should stop asking you each time you select a link.

    You can clear defaults and settings related to Silk browser.One user of a forum in the link below suggested that -

    obsessed2 : " ........ Select Settings --> More (+) --> Applications --> Choose all Apps from the drop down menu. Locate the App that opens by default (e.g. Browser, Opera etc.). Touch the App and another window will open. If the App is set by default, you can touch Clear Defaults in the Launch by Default section. The next time you open a browser, assuming this is what you cleared defaults on, you will be prompted with the Complete Action Using pop-up again from which you can select the App you want to use by default."
