This usually means that the file association ofr text/html or the default 
browser is missing the %u or %U parameter in its description (.desktop file)
This parameter tells the desktop environment, in your case KDE, that the 
application is able to handle URLs itself, if it is missing the desktop 
assumes that it can only handle files and downloads it first.
