Since you have not found a way to reproduce the issue in a month, I 
assume that you do not severely suffer from the problem.

An advantage of KDE is that with some tuning it may be made more 
lightweight, while Gnome is less configurable. I do not consider a 8 
year old laptop with i5 CPU and integrated graphics adapter as a high 
performance unit (it never was it). While Gnome makes the fan annoyingly 
noisy, there is no such problem in KDE with disabled desktop effects. I 
admit that the laptop is neither a low end one, and I was lucky with a 
Chinese SSD put into modem slot, the cost of upgrade was less than $100 
and it improved startup time significantly. Maybe you are overestimating 
hardware requirements of desktop environments. While sometimes it is 
hard to control precise behavior of DE, some features (hard to configure 
from scratch) works out of the box, so it is a trade-off.

I can not say that this page is enlightening. In particular I do not 
like that it does not describe mimeapps.list files in more details. 
Various tool actually update this file. I have not summarized my 
bookmarks and notes on MIME and scheme handlers, but the following link 
may be useful even when gnome specific stuff is ignored:
