    Question Open Suse 11.1 - How to set default browser MANUALLY

    Hello All,
    I have use Firefox most of the time, but I do not trust this application anymore. (too many straight modifications, and strange application behavior when using it).
    For some things i use Firefox, so I do not want to delete Firefox from my system entirely.

    I have installed the Opera Browser on my system, to use it as my main browser.

    Question
    1. Where and How can I Set opera to be my default browser of my Open Suse O.S.


    Thanks for your help, answers

    Strange, never had any problems with Firefox.
    Are you sure it isn't an add-on causing all this?

    Depends on which DE you use.
    If you use KDE you can change it via SystemSettings->Default-Applications->Web browser. (<-- Not sure about the names of the menus)

    Then change "mozillafirefox" to "opera" (without quotes).

    Good luck!
    Where did I put my coffee cup?
    dir -R /home/* | grep "coffee cup"

    I'm using KDE but a windowsmanager IceWM, that i've stripped from everything that i do not need :-)
    So i guesed i've stripped to much (from KD) to find this setting back

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction Edward_lii.
