Win XPSP 1600ghz Athlon

I have Firefox IE6 Opera9 Beta & SeaMonkey

My problem is that the default browser is stuck on Firefox. even though the "Check to see if IE6 is default" is enabled as with Opera & SeaMonkey. I still get the "do you wish to set.........browser as default after I have previously changed it to default.

I have looked in Set Program Access & Defaults

Under NON MICROSOFT

Choose a web browser of IE6 Firefox & SeaMonkey

After seriously looking for a long time I figured I'd post this here so I could help other newbies (I've only completely switched since a few days ago!) get Konqueror from opening all my Gaim and Konversation links!
Open terminal > Put in:
Code:
sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser
Then type in the number next to Firefox. For me it was 2.
That's it! :D

I just installed Kubuntu after some problems with Ubuntu and Fedora. Everything has ran perfectly since the beginning, but I would just like to know how to change my favourites so that Firefox is the browser instead of Konqueror.
Firefox is not the default browser

Hello all,
Despite my efforts, I cannot set Firefox to be my default browser in Ubuntu 10.10.
It used to be the default until I installed Chromium last year. Since then, Ubuntu Software Center, LibreOffice, EverNote (through Wine) and probably other apps open links in Chromium instead of Firefox.
I tried several solutions to no avail :
- System > Preferences > Preferred Applications : Web Browser = Firefox
I tried with the custom command too : "firefox %s" => still opens Chromium.
- Firefox internal preferences : firefox = default
- Chromium internal preferences : chromium is NOT the default
- stuff li
[ubuntu] how to change my system default browser to firefox?

Hello,
in the preference --> Preferred Application I have Firefox selected with radio button on 'open link with web browser default'
nevertheless when I click on a link, it open the Google-crome.
typing sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser in a terminal session, I see:
There are 2 choices for the alternative x-www-browser (providing /usr/bin/x-www-browser).
