Konqueror won't display webpages


I have a strange problem on konqueror - instead of rendering webpages it instead offers a dialog box asking whether to download the html file or to open it with nvu. Huh? How do I tell konqueror to render webpages? Actually it will load some webpages seemingly if you do not mention the name of a specific html file. For example the URL http://mandrivausers.org does load.

I have Mandriva2006 running konqueror 3.4.2 installed on 3 machines. Only one has this problem. I can only guess that there some peculiar setting on this one machine which is screwing up konqueror.

I'm sure someone will quickly tell me to just use Firefox. Well, I do mostly, but konqueror does have some nice features like the ability to display man pages (except in my case, where it want to download the html file).

IIRC, you have to to have konqueror handle html files by default.

Settings -> Configure Konqueror -> File Associations -> Text -> HTML -> Application Preference Order (Put Konqueror on top)

That should do the trick.

Thanks for the tip. I now realize that I inflicted this on myself because at one point I configured "nvu" as the default application for html files, because I wanted nvu to open html files when I clicked on them when using konq as a file browser. I did not realize that this would also cause konq to want to use nvu for html files viewer by konq as a web browser. This seems like a case where the combined functionality of konq as both web and file browser causes a problem.

I don't know what NVU is, but for the most part in KDE, I set the app I use the most on a file to open it, and just right click -> Open With every other time.
