gnome preferred applications config location

I have changed my system recently from Debian Lenny to Fedora 10. When installing F10 I kept my /home partition from debian and it worked perfectly.

Well, almost. Iceweasel is still set as preferred Browser. Obviously, now back at Firefox no link will open. Trying to change preferred applications it now crashes.

My idea now is to manually change the config file - can't find it though. Anyone know, where the preferred applications config file is located? I have been looking for hours.

I have now solved the problem. For those with the same problem you need to amend the %gconf.xml file in:



application, config, gnome
