Yes, firefox is named there, but until Sunday afternoon I could always 
manually open konqueror and type in a url.  Sometimes I want to choose a 
particular browser for a particular site.  Since it worked as required before 
Sunday afternoon I'd really like to know what changed it.  Later today I'll 
try changing that setting back to konqueror and see if the problem persists, 
but I have to go out now.
