    Default Firefox and Thunderbird use Gnome instead of KDE


    I have openSuse 11.1 gnome installed and switched to kde4.2. My Firefox
    and Thunderbird now still use gnome for their menus and the saving
    dialog. How can I change this? FF v3.0.4 TB v2.0.0.19

    Firefox and Thunderbird are built with the GTK toolkit, the same
    toolkit Gnome is built with, so they both use GTK dialogues. Try running
    Gimp under KDE and you'll see the same thing.

    This is the nature of having applications built with different
    toolkits.

    There are some things that can be done to make Firefox sort of a bit
    integrated in to KDE. See 'how to integrate Firefox into KDE - 1'
    (http://forum.kde.org/how-to-integrat...e-t-17786.html)
    or put "firefox kde" in to Google for more.


    Also you may want to install available updates as openSUSE has Firefox
    3.0.6 now.
