Looks like the command associated with text/html does not inlcude the %u 
parameter, telling KDE that the application can handle URLs.

The command for Konqueror is usually

kfmclient openProfile webbrowsing %U

If you are using Konqueror, you can remove a local entry for text/html from 
.kde/share/mimelnk, then KDE will use the global one which hopefully contains 
the correct command :)
