What is your Browser preference set to? Tools -> Preferences -> Browser

Also please clarify your version of "gaim" as Fedora 7 Test 4 included a Beta
version of Pidgin 2.0.0 and no Gaim at all.
Comment 2 Guillermo Gómez 2007-05-23 16:03:27 EDT
I see the problem, there was no default, it was set at manual.

$ rpm -q pidgin

Comment 3 Stu Tomlinson 2008-03-09 13:10:21 EDT
I don't see how it could be defaulting to manual with no browser command
specified, so I can't "fix" this (and I've seen no other reports of it ever).
