In GNOME, the default browser is Mozilla. If you click on an HTTP link in an e-mail, or inside another document (like a PDF file), it will open in the default browser. Here is how to change the default browser (in GNOME) from mozilla to firefox.

Run this in a command terminal:


select the Custom Web browser and add this line firefox "%s"

(if the firefox executable is not in your path, include the full path to firefox ... ie, /usr/lib/firefox/firefox "%s")

I've been putting up with a similar problem. On Mandrake 10.0, I've got a lot of applications -- OpenOffice, KDE Help, Mandrake Control Center, Timidity, lots of others -- that seem to use a different font server. None of the standard KDE font controls seem to change them, and they're all stuck at a ridiculously small size.

OpenOffice and Timidity are quite blocky; I thought maybe they use ncurses, which I believe (somebody tell me if I'm wrong) is a bare-bones font server.
