Konqueror launching firefox

I recently switched from Konqueror to Firefox for my web browser. I set it as 
my browser in the control center (KDE Components -> Component Chooser -> Web 
Browser, open http urls in: firefox), so that it opens when I click on links 
in kmail.
However, I still want to run konqueror on occassion, and now it's broken -- 
when I enter a URL in the konqueror address bar, it launches firefox to open 
the page!

Is there any way to work around this? I've tried using the "in an application 
based on the contents of the url" setting, but this makes KDE download the 
file and open a local copy with firefox -- which is usually not what I want.

I'm running KDE 3.3 on Debian unstable.
