    Default Browser


    Web links don't do anything in my wine apps. I'm trying to find where to set the default browser. (which I want to be my linux firefox)
    I found a post linking to what was supposed to be a site w/ instructions about a registry key to modify. The link no longer works.
    Could someone give me the name of the key w. the default browser?

    Thanks!

    No one can give you anything unless you tell us what desktop environment you use (KDE/Gnome).

    I'm using KDE 4.1. The default browser for KDE is set as firefox, and linux applications act accordingly. Just not wine apps.

    Thanks!

    Oops! I seem to have misread your initial post. Didn't see you were talking about wine... I'm more of a beer lover myself, but I assume this is what you're looking for:
