Comment 3 Warren Togami 2004-09-26 06:08:09 EDT
Can you be more specific about which applications exhibit this
problem?  I just tried system-config-network, and Help -> Contents
launched my Preferred Browser firefox.

Well, the Preferred Browser of the root user, since the tool is
running as root through the usermode helper thing.
Comment 4 drago01 2004-09-26 06:30:43 EDT
yes it runs the preferred browser of the root user but it should
launch the preferred browser of the user which uses the tool trought
even if root has the same browser it can have different settings/theme
whatever wich is anoying.
