XFCE4 and setting browser
I run XFCE4 on my laptop and have been having all kinds of issues with getting Mozilla Firefox to work properly. The main problem I have is clicking on links in other applications. In gaim, if I click a link, the link opens in my currently open Firefox, but also tries to start a new instance of Firefox, bringing up the annoying "Select Profile" dialog box.
Clicking a link in Thunderbird, of all applications, does nothing. I have to copy/paste the URL to browse links from there.
I have the environment variable "BROWSER" set to "firefox", which is, I understood, how to set the browser in XFCE.
