I have set Firefox as the preferred app under preferred apps. However if I drag a web address off of firefox to create a desktop link, it always ends up being opened in Konqueror when I click on it in Gnome.
Ok. Since the last post I went back into the preferred apps settings through Preferences->Personal and the application was now "custom". It was set to Firefox before. I'm guessing visiting the section in FF caused the change to custom. I set it back to firefox and everything works. Very strange!
