Links opening in apps without asking first

Recently, links tapped on in Chrome and the Google app have sometimes (but not always) been automatically opening in apps instead of asking me what to do first.

I would rather this not happen. I have these apps installed on my phone for a reason, but sometimes it makes more sense to open the the links in a web browser or a different application.

Going into settings and setting individual apps to "Ask every time" when encountering supported links has not made a difference. Links still open in that app without me being asked first. Resetting all app preferences did not solve this problem either.

Is there any solution to this issue?

This is happening on an American Sony Xperia XZ Premium (dual SIM) running Android version 7.1.1 with the July 1, 2017 security patch (Build number 45.0.A.7.90).
