Default kmail default browser

Hi Guys

I know I managed to find out how to do this when I had feisty installed but
now can't find the info on how to get kmail to launch firefox from a link in
the email instead of konqueror. Anyone know how to set up firefox as kmails
default link handeler?

Hi Bruce

Are you in gnome as I am or in kde? That's certainly not under settings in
kmail or firefox. Ok, found it. It was in konqueror and did the trick.

thx

Hi Niel

I obviously don't have k-menu installed? I was trying to find it in
Configuration Editor but couldn't. Howevr have found it via konqueror going
via

settings -> configure konqueror -> file associations -> text -> html

and moving firefox to first place. Am guessing this should work regardless of
what menu software is installed assuming konqueror is. And I believe std
install installs it by default
