Description of problem:
I set as default browser epiphany, then when i open help file for
system-config-samba it launches it using firefox.
The expected behaviour is to open it using epiphany
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

As it is now, all configuration tools that need privileged access are started as
the root user, so they use the settings configured for the root user as well. It
is being discussed to e.g. separate the code needing privileged access from the
user interface, which would then run as your normal user and pick up your (and
not root's) settings.
Until then, you could configure epiphany as the browser for root as well as a
workaround. Be aware that it then runs as root, so don't accidentally use it for
browsing the web!
I'm closing this as deferred, so when the infrastructure I talked about comes in
place, we can revisit this thing.
