    Default How do you change default web browser in KDE4?


    I have found the way to do this for KDE 3.x.x but not for KDE 4.
    Konqueror is the default web browser which opens when you click a link,
    but I want to use FireFox instead. Where must I go for KDE4 to change
    the default web browser to something else?

    Kmenu > Configure Desktop > Advanced > File Assoc > Text > HTML.

    From there just adjust the Application Preference Order

    I've done that and applied but links still seem to open in Konqueror.
    Anything else that needs to be done?

    Try going to Desktop Settings/Personalised Settings -> Default
    Applications -> Web Browser -> Change to 'in the following broswer' ->
    browse for firefox

    A second thanks, that's easier than configuring each application
    individually!
