Default default browser config file
In what file is the user's default browser selection stored?

When I installed Firefox I did not select to make it my default browser, and now I wish I had, but I don't seem to be able to make the change through the gui. I'll just edit the config file if I can find it.

Thanks.

I think your supposed to go into pcbsd control panel and then edit preferred applications.

I think that's how you choose your default everything.

Default default browser config file
It varies between Window Managers, but if you go to the control panel
you should find a location to change the default browser. What WM are
you running?

I'm running the default KDE 4.X, and yes, it is in System Settings / Default Applications. When Firefox wouldn't do it I just jumped over the next easy step and went straight to the hard way. Thanks to both of you.
