edit ~/.bashrc , and comment out the line that says
Code:
export BROWSER=seamonkey
and uncomment the line that says
Code:
#export BROWSER=firefox

If you're using XFce, open the "Start" menu, then Settings, then Preferred Applications, then select your preferred browser and mail application, then Close.

Hi The Headacher,

I followed along and found bashrc both in root and in etc/skel/.  Should I delete one of them?

dont delete your .bashrc files.

Right click the icon and change the browser that it executes

No. the one in /root/ is for roots settings, the one in /etc/skel/ is used as a template when you create a new user. You should also have one in your users home dir ( ~/ ). Modify that one. Note that for instance "mcedit ~/.bashrc" will edit the .bashrc in the current users home dir, so you should do that as the normal user, not root. Unless you want to change it in roots settings of course.

i keep having the problem.
In the desktop the Browser botton execute "seamonkey" so i change it
However in the "quick bar" the botton execute "browser".
I modify the ~/bashrc and comment the sea monkey and uncoment the firefox part but i seem to dont take the change.
I dont have the XFce. Im using KDE from 2vector linux SHOH 5.8 final. i can delete the "browser" icon and create one of firefox but when i try to open a page it will open sea monkey.

This is my bashrc file

## Set this for your first choice
export BROWSER=firefox
#export BROWSER=seamonkey
#export BROWSER=opera
#export EXPLORER=konqueror
#export NETWORK_EXPLORER=konqueror
#export AUDIO_PLAYER=xmms
#export VIDEO_PLAYER=gxine
export DISPLAY=$DISPLAY


Any idea?
