Setting Default browser in 2016 in Citrix environment

Ekuskowski used Ask the Experts™
Recently a new Citrix enviromnment was put in place. The server are Windows server 2016 .
When users login and try to access a website link for example: they are prompted "How do you want to open this website? but they have no choices. ( I =attached a screen shot of this prompt )
Basically they have no default web browser configured.
Also I then went to control panel and chose IE11 as the default browser, then everything works until the user logs off and then logs back in again.
How can I get this setting to stick ?
It doesn't work for Admins either
No other Browsers have been installed on the server.
