Changing default browser in RH9...

I recently installed AMSN messenger so i could talk to my people in RH9, however, when i try to access people's profiles, it brings up the default mozilla browser that came with RH9. i prefer (and use) Mozilla Firebird. is there a way that i can change the default browser that linux uses from Mozilla to MZ?

Yes under the menu choose preferences then prefferd applications. I thing you need to change the default browser to what you want and add the $s to the end of the name.
