When two (or more) apps register the same URL handler, the latest installed app wins. However, when deleting the latest app, the URL handler of the first installed app is not restored.

Steps to Reproduce:
Install Navigon Europe first, then Navigon select (or Navigon EU10).
open navigonDEU:// in Safari
Navigon select opens.
Now delete Navigon select and open the URL again.

Expected Results:
Navigon Europe should open.

Actual Results:
Nothing opens. The URL handler is deleted.


After deleting an app, the URL handler database should be restored using the still installed apps.
