Changing default Browser


How do you change your default browser for applications. All the programs I use open things up in Galeon and I use Mozilla.

Go Go Mozilla!

I think that it's an application-specific thing. I could be wrong, but to use lynx as the browser for pine that's how it was.

What desktop/window manager are you using. Some apps you can specify the default browser.. but like in Gnome you can set this under the URL Handler in the Control Center.
In like KDE I believe its somewhere under File Browsing > File Associations in the KDE Control Center.
