Change default internet browser in KDE

For some reasons I preferred Mozilla Firefox than the default internet browser in KDE which is Konqueror. This is mainly because I’ve just recently moved to a linux machine and I use Firefox exclusively for the past few years during my days with MS Windows. I prefer to stick with the one I familiar with.

The below documentation will guide you on how to change your default internet browser in KDE

For Kubuntu Users

One thought on “Change default internet browser in KDE”

  1. Nice guide. Getting tired of having to copy web links from my emails (using KMail) and manually paste it into Firefox.
