Thread: How to get OOo writer URL to open in Firefox?

    Default How to get OOo writer URL to open in Firefox?

    A problem I'm having with URLs in OpenOffice writer documents:

    By pressing ctrl+mouse click, one can open these links externally in a browser. I would assume this to be the standard browser (in my case Firefox), but somehow the links always open in Konqueror.

    htm/html documents are setup to be opened by Firefox in my Personal Settings > Fire associations menu, yet this doesn't seem to work for OOo writer links.

    Does anyone know why, and what I can do about it?

    Cheers

    PS: I'm running OOO 3, openSUSE 11.1 & KDE 4.3.1, in case that info is helpful ...

    excellent! changed that setting according to your screenshot, and now things work fine ...

    (the setting was "in an application based on the contents of the url" -- i wonder what part of the url told ooo to call upon konqueror rather than firefox??? meh, never mind ... )
