I screwed up my file associations

I love Mozilla, but everytime I clicked a link in Evolution, it would open the link in Konqueror. So, I said, I know how to fix that! K-Settings-Control Center-KDE Components-File Associations. Added Mozilla under text/html. Moved Mozilla to the top of the list. Went back into Evolution, clicked on a link again - KDE STILL starts Konqueror (but saves the page in a temp directory) then starts Mozilla where it tries to read the page from the temp directory (which is, of course, without images). So, I said, well shoot. We'll just go back the way it was, and I'll just live with it. Removed Mozilla. Made sure Konqueror was on top. NOW, when I click on a link, I get an error in Konqueror that says: "There appears to be a configuration error. You have associated Konqueror with text/html, but it can't handle this type of file."

I even tried clicking the "Defaults" button (hoping this would restore the proper settings), No dice.

Can anyone tell me what is going wrong?

SOLVED - sort of

Well, I put the mozilla association back in. Then logged out and back in. When I click on a link in Evolution, it still starts up Konqueror (but it stays on a blank page) and then opens the correct link in Mozilla. So, I'm satisfied, for the time being...

Why this is so difficult is beyond me.
