Can you set mozillafirefox to be the default browser when clicking on links in email?

When I click on a link in email (kontact/kmail), I get konqueror. I wouldn't mind it, but I prefer mozilla firefox, and konqueror has a cookie issue. I have to keep logging in manually, and some sites won't work if the cookies won't work.
So the question is, how and can I set up mozilla firefox to be the default browser?

thanks, I found it. different way to get there, but was able to find it when you put "KDE" and "Componet".

Tested it, and it does work. Thanks again.
