Evolution not starting browser

I use evolution for my pop mail but have one problem. Whenever I get a weblink in a message I can click it but no browser opens. I guess I need to specify what browser to use but can't find the option. System wide I'd like to change the default browser to firefox aswell. How to make these changes? Syseem uses konqueror at the moment and since I'm using Fluxbox more and more I wnat to get rid of it as default browser!

There should be some Gnome control center somewhere. :-) And there should be a Default browser option there. I am not sure because I am using KDE, but have both KDE and GNOME installed. When I wanted to change my the default browser for Evolution, I booted into Gnome, found that Control Center, and changed the default browser option. It was a while ago, sorry, I dont remember exactly where you should go.
