The default browser thing was for GNOME only, and it did not properly integrate
with everything (which you are seeing if you clicked on it at any point -- it
should never need to be changed with each upgrade, but it set itself up
stupidly, which is why I disabled it in the first place).

In GNOME, the correct way to set it up is to use
gnome-default-applications-properties (Main GNOME menu > Preferences > More
Preferences > Default Applications).  This is what the default application thing
in Mozilla tried to do but failed.  Not sure how to do it in KDE, but since this
was a GNOME thing only, it probably won't have an effect on you unless KDE reads
settings from GNOME.  In that case, use the suggestion here to fix your default
application and it will never need touching when you upgrade.
