Lisp, emacs-lisp

Well, I'm trying to change a variable, and as a result, a browser, in my code, whenever I click a button.
But when I do (setq browser "netscape")( and then do something ), and, just after I do (setq browser "konqueror") to leave back in the variable what was before.
But, it remains in netscape
Why doesn't it change to konqueror?
My skills in lisp are not the best as you can see, is there any other command than setq, or another way to do that?. Thnx.

Some variables are "per buffer" perhaps it is one of those?

Also what is the scope of the variable? A "let" may interfere. Elisp is also weird, it has dynamically scoped variables not lexically.
