Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Don't you understand anything about the spirit and efficiency of of good GUI . . ?
no, you don't you like slackware . .
Typical roundabout response from someone who prefers keyboard interface over GUI.
You're an absolute idiot. Did you want help or not, or do you just want to stay angry and ignorant?
KDE control center > look for file associations > text/html > change it to just open with your preferred browser and remove any other programs. You can also right click on an icon and change the file association for that file type directly.
Actually don't. Perhaps you should just go back to windows, I think it's really more appropriate for someone of your mentality.
1) Learn to read and explore and look for answers by yourself, I've already told you where the answer to your question... look two levels down in the kde control center and there it is: KDE control center > KDE components > file associations > text/html. It's really simple, any trained monkey could have found it if they'd bothered to look. You're really making yourself look like an idiot here.
2) Perhaps you might get further in life if you both were a bit more polite to people who try and help you, and if you used your initiative a bit more instead of waiting for answers to be handed to you on a plate. Repeated abuse towards people who offer advice will get you nowhere fast. I really feel sorry for your poor mother.

I'm quite alright with that, I certainly feel like I am morally vindicated in all this anyway.
