Iceweasel upgrade-- links now don't work.

Running Debian Etch. I upgraded to Iceweasel recently. The urls I click on in KMail, or in KNewsTicker, which used to open up Firefox fine, now seem to, unsuccessfully, try to open up Konqueror. The start up icon bounces like crazy, but never opens the link. I'm assuming I need to reset a link somewhere to make Iceweasel my default internet browser. Any ideas?

Don't know anything about KMail or KNewsTicker, but I would assume that somewhere in the setup for those programs is a "default browser" option.

You can change the default browser and more in KDE Components -> Default Applications in kcontrol.
