gimp 2.8.22 - norman liddle - 01-09-2021

I downloaded gimp 2.8.22. As a new user of gimp, running peppermint 8 (linux/ubuntu) which uses chrome as its default browser. 
When I go to the help section I am redirected to google drive? Have not got a clue for this? Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Probably a quirk of the OS Often difficult to fix.

This using Gimp 2.8.22 / Xubuntu 18.04 - the help setup in Edit -> Preferences https://i.imgur.com/v53T9QE.jpg

F1 takes me to https://docs.gimp.org/2.8/en_GB/gimp-image-window.html (obviously depends on locale but should be similar. The browser is slimjet - another chrome based one.

If you want a PDF manual for off-line use there is one here: https://gimp.linux.it/www/meta/gimp-help-2.8-en.pdf

Edit: According to distrowatch
By employing its Site Specific Browser, Peppermint integrates seamlessly with cloud and web-based applications
That browser might be the problem
