addendum..
now, without the %u, when I click on certain links, I get something like this:

file:///var/tmp/kdecache-pbc/krun/32542.0.ma.do


when I put back the %u, it goes to the real web site.. so, I need the %u. but
it doesn't work when iceweasel is closed..

It works for me whether Iceweasel is already running or not. But when
it IS running then there is a difference, in that I see the Klipper
window open and close very quickly. Maybe your problem is something to
do with Klipper configuration?

As I said, I do not usually use kmail. In mutt, when I highlight a URL,
the Klipper window opens and I manually choose Iceweasel or Konqueror.

not sure what klipper is..

when it DIDn'T work, after I took out the %u, when I clicked on a link, a
window would opem up with the From and TO URLs.. it disappeared after
iceweasel opened.

I have at least 3 options listed in file associations, but I never am asked a
choice. probably because I have firefox as default.
