I have use Firefox most of the time, but I do not trust this application anymore. (too many straight modifications, and strange application behavior when using it). For some things i use Firefox, so I do not want to delete Firefox from my system entirely. I have installed the Opera Browser on my system, to use it as my main browser. Question 1. Where and How can I Set opera to be my default browser of my Open Suse O.S.
For some reason, i cannot set my default browser to Chromium. Whenever i open up Chromium, it asks whether it should be the default browser or not. I say yes i mean "Set as default" But nothing happens. When i open it again, i am greeted with the same question again.
I have found the way to do this for KDE 3.x.x but not for KDE 4. Konqueror is the default web browser which opens when you click a link, but I want to use FireFox instead. Where must I go for KDE4 to change the default web browser to something else?
OpenOffice can not follow URLs and complains that it can not find the default browser. Konqueror is set as the default browser in the 'systemsettings' and no other application (so far) has complained about this.
I've been using Thunderbird (18.104.22.168) with html attachments opening in Firefox.I just installed the new Chrome browser (5.0.375.70) and like it very much, enough so that I decided to switch from Firefox now that the Add-Ons I like are available for Chrome (Lastpass, Adblock, AutoPager). I've made Chrome the default browser in KDE's "Configure Desktop>Default Applications", but html attachments in Thunderbird still open in Firefox.I've tried most of the fixes offered on this and other forums as well as those offered by Mozilla's various help files, but nothing works. Most suggestions refer to fixes for 1.x versions of Thunderbird and no longer can be used.I just checked another OpenSUSE 11.2 PC with the newer 3.04 version of T'bird and saw no solution there either.
I'm running AntiX (Debian testing and Mepis with IceWM and FluxBox) and I can't change the default web browser (which right now is Dillo). I've checked the config files for Fluxbox and IceWM but I didn't find anything (It could be possible that I missed something).
I have three pc's in the house, one desktop and three laptops. the two windows pc's (windoze 7) worked with dsl and firefox just fine. my linux debian laptop DID give me a network connection, i can log in as admin and change the router/modem ect with no prob. i cant get the default browser in debian to load a page. iceweasel says cant resolve the host name. i have WOW and secondlife installed and both games work fine. i can get a connection on the wireless and play them with no prob. I cant surf the web with any default browser in debian. i have a internet connection. i just cant surf so its got to be in the web browser settings? i looked, did not change anything, but do not see what could be causing this.
I have updated from Fedora 14 to Fedora 15. I have both Firefox and Chrome installed. FF used to be the default browser, but since the upgrade, each time I click on a link somewhere (help pages, documents, terminal etc.) they are opened in chrome. How do I change it back to FF?
I have Chromium and Firefox installed on Karmic. HTML files by default open with Chromium. I try to set Firefox as the default application through the "Other application..." dialog, but it opens the file through Firefox once, then after it goes back to Chromium
I tried Chrome, but I still like Firefox better. I can't figure out how to get Firefox back as the default browser. When I go to Preferences --> Prefered Applications, web browser is set to Firefox.
I found this post...[url]
They said to run this command...
Tried that and it didn't help either. When clicking on link icons on my desktop, they open up in Chrome. Chrome says something to the extent "chrome is not your default browser to open links with. Do you want to make it?" I selected No and checked the box to not show it again. (That's why the above is not exactly what it said.) Kind of funny it said that yet it still opened up with Chrome and not Firefox.
I cannot set Firefox to be my default browser in Ubuntu 10.10. It used to be the default until I installed Chromium last year. Since then, Ubuntu Software Center, LibreOffice, EverNote (through Wine) and probably other apps open links in Chromium instead of Firefox.
I tried several solutions to no avail :
- System > Preferences > Preferred Applications : Web Browser = Firefox I tried with the custom command too : "firefox %s" => still opens Chromium.
So I've been poking around google and trying to figure out if there's an answer - or at least a semi-solution to this problem, and have come up with nothing. I've just recently installed Chromium and since I've had it on my Windows 7 install, I'm trying to set it as my default browser, but for some reason it doesn't seem to stay my default browser.
Opening and closing it seems to erase the setting as it always tells me that "Chromium is not your default browser, would you like to make it your default?" And I don't know why.
It keeps asking if I want to set it as default.I always press 'yes' and when I exit and open it again it asks the same question...If I say 'never ask me again' it stops, but continues after I reboot the computer..
I am running PC LinuxOS 2010.12, I am using google chrome as my web browser, when I open Chrome it asks me if I want to set chrome as my default browser and I click yes. The message goes away, but the next time I open the browser its asks again. When I go to the tools settings it says that chrome is not the default browser and I try to click set as default browser but it does not do anything,
I find this command sudo update-alternatives -config x-www-browser I choose Chrome. It works for xpdf, but Evince still starts Firefox after click. I feel Linux is not standard. I use Linux Mint 8 (Helena) LXDE.
I have both Firefox and Chromium installed on my system. I have Firefox set as the default browser, but if, for example, I open GIMP go to Help --> About then click on "Visit the GIMP website" it opens in Chromium, not Firefox.On Maverick amd64, fresh install.
I have Firefox and Chromium installed since last year on Ubuntu 10.10.Firefox is and has always been my Default Browser.Recently, the Ubuntu Software Center changed its mind on what to do when I click on the "website" link on software pages: it now opens the link in Chromium instead of Firefox.I want it back to opening links in Firefox.I suspect the last updates of Chromium to be responsible for this behavior.When I remove Chromium from my Ubuntu, the links open in Firefox. Reinstalling Chromium leads back to links opening in Chromium.
The Ubuntu menu System > Preferences > Preferred Applications shows that the default browser is Firefox.In Firefox, menu Tools > Preferences > Advanced > General > "Check now" tells me "Firefox is already set as your default browser".In Chromium, Preferences > Basic > Default Browser confirms that : "Chromium is not currently your default browser".I also changed the following setting from Chromium to Firefox (and restarted my computer) to not avail:
sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser
There are 2 choices for the alternative x-www-browser (providing /usr/bin/x-www-browser).
I installed chromium through the software center but every time I open it up it reminds me that it is not the default browser. I click "make default" every time but my computer still makes firefox the default browser. How do I change this?
I am running AnyMeal, which is a KDE program. There's a link in the set-up for FAQs, but when I try to open it I am told "Could not launch the browser: Could not find kfmclient". I checked /etc/alternatives, and the x-www-browser is set to be iceweasel (Debian's firefox), which is what I use. I do not have Konqueror installed. I use Fluxbox, however, I also run some Gnome and KDE programs. I checked if there is a package I may need, but came up empty:
I have many browsers on my system like mozilla, firefox etc.., How can I set my default browser in my launch panel. So, when I click on my browser I have to start my default browser. Ofcourse, I am using Red Hat Linux Advanced Server kernel version 4.
I installed google-chrome and configured it as my default browser in my desktop "Preferred applications" configuration app, and in update-alternatives --config x-www-browser. I also exported the BROWSER variable to be = /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome (logged out and then logged in again). Although, If I open a XLS file with some links inside (OpenOffice 3.2.0) it opens links in firefox instead of google chrome. I surfed across all options in Tools->Options and there is nothing to set or change the default browser.
I installed U-lite on a 1GHz Dell optiplex GX-150, 512 SDRAM. The system is going to be given to a complete Linux beginner. I would like to replace Kazehakase with a separate web browser and file manager. I'm looking for a user-friendly browser and file manager that will run nicely on the hardware and work well with the distro. The computer runs U-lite and its default applications great.
