List of issues/ questions with manjaro-openbox-regular-17.1.12-stable-x86_64

I'm having issues/ questions since I installed manjaro-openbox-regular-17.1.12-stable-x86_64, both on a new vm and on a new desktop (dual boot with win7).

The list is a bit long, and some of it might not be specifically openbox-related, but I still hope to get it solved or listed on some todo-list:

  1. jgmenu doesn't open from virtualbox:
    Click on jgmenu opens the menu on the live iso and desktop installation, but not on the installed vm.
    How do I fix it?

  2. I changed my preferred browser (in preferred applications) and uninstalled chromium.
    Still in jgmenu it is first in the list.
    How do I change it?

  3. I installed lightdm-setting and grub-customizer (both on desktop and vm)
    Both won't start from the openbox menu. The authentication opens, but nothing after.
    I am able to use both from the terminal, with sudo.
    For lightdm-settings there's a long list of errors listed at the end of the post.

  4. For a while now, I am unable to open catfish search from openbox-menu without opening a terminal as well.
    If I open termite or xfce4-terminal, then cat will start (from openbox-menu). No errors listed.
    Cat will then start for a while after terminal was closed.
    Very uncomfortable.
    IIRC, this started a few updates ago (stable brunch). It also happens on an older vm I have: manjaro-xfce-16.08-x86_64

  5. Running rofr.sh -r, I get an error message when closing the menu:
    xkbcommon: ERROR: couldn't find a Compose file for locale "en_IL"
    I didn't look into this, but here are facts I remember from a while back, which philm helped with and fixed (IIRC) in the XFCE edition.
    Currently, on my vm, with locale en_IL I get the error, but on the desktop, where locale is us.utf-8, there's no error.
    I think this should be corrected in the installation phase.
    For this vm I used calamares with uefi.

  6. starting pamac-tray from terminal shows the following message:

(pamac-tray:23880): Gdk-CRITICAL **: 10:36:57.062: gdk_window_thaw_toplevel_updates: assertion 'window->update_and_descendants_freeze_count > 0' failed

And last:
