If these problems persists, then you should report those bugs. Of course 
after you've installed the latest stable version, and tried to 
reproduce with that.

I can not recall the 3.2.2 version of KDE, and neither can tell what 
sort of hacks and quirks are in your FC2 version. Maybe the "Web 
Browser" component was implemented later or maybe the Fedora guys just 
ripped it off >:) (I have that component using 3.5.3)

Another solution would be to change the program associated with html 
files. But of course it is possible that emails includes http URLs with 
other than .html extensions (php, cgi etc...), and changing all the 
associations is rather an unelegant and not preferred way :)
