Firefox - default browser

Hey, I was just wondering if anyone tried to make firefox a default browser under Kubuntu. I went to system settings and i changed it. Also i changed files associations so firefox comes first, i checked options in firefox to check if its default browser, as well as i went to about:config. After all those changes everytime i click any link (eg. thunderbird or gaim), it opens konqueror. Is there anyway of going around it?



Ok, after doing little research i found the solution. I don't know why System Settings arent working the way they supose to, but there is a way of setting it all up.Switch your console and type in sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser And then select your default browser. Works just fine! Source:

Got it!

Okay, got it! All you have to do is type in sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser

Re: Firefox - default browser

Hi, lemining. I had the same problem on Kubuntu with XChat (and others non kde programs) and I solved it doing this: sudo update-alternatives --set x-www-browser /usr/lib/firefox/firefox-bin

This setting is available

This setting is available from Settings->KDE Components->Default Applications
