Evolution and browers

How so I change the settings in Ximian Evolution so that clicking on a link loads Mozilla Filebird instead of Konqueror?

Thanks in advance.

I know this doesn't help much, but I remember reading that you don't change the default browser of Evolution, but rather change the default browser of your Window Manager like Gnome or KDE or whatever.....I think. If I come across this I will let you know.

I just looked it up and I am correct, this is not an evolution setting. If you are using gnome then you need something like: gnome-default-applications-properties

There is a way to do this ... especially if you're using KDE. Copy the following lines into your /home/<username>/.gnome/Gnome file:
http-show=/usr/bin/<path_to_firebird_executable> "%s"
https-show=/usr/bin/<path_to_firebird_executable> "%s"
Replace the <path_to_firebird_executable> as appropriate.
