I was trying to open a link to a Facebook post sent in Facebook Messenger recently, and I got an unexpected "Open With" dialog, asking whether I wanted to open it with...

  • Facebook


  • Facebook


The exact same app entry repeated two times, like so:

This looked suspicious to me. Is this possibly a sign of some malware that's masquerading as Facebook on my phone? Or is it just an innocent bug/confusion within the Facebook app or Android system?

Are there particular steps I should take to fix it?

Facebook appears only once in my "App info -> All apps" list.

I'm running Android version 9 on a Google Pixel 2. My Facebook app is version - I'm happy to dig up any other diagnostic information that might be useful, just please let me know in a comment what needs to be added/clarified.
