Indeed I had a html.desktop file residing in kde/share/mimelnk/text, 
and I deleted it as you said. Unfortunately it makes no difference.
I do not have a mozilla.desktop file in .kde/share/mimelnk/...

I'm not sure what you mean with the %u parameter. In what file should I
have to set this? If you can provide any pointers...

I found a bewildering amount of .desktop files in /usr/share/... 
(using tools/find files in kde file manager).
I'm a bit confused about what to do now...

In response to the message from Anders Ellenshøj Anderse:

Opening a css file over ftp works allright, I do this all the time to
maintain my website. 
I changed the .css association from quanta to kwrite (using open with / typing 
kwrite / always open this kind of file with...) , because quanta keeps
loading all kinds of other used files when I click on a .css file.
(plus it loads a new instance of quanta each time I click on a file)

I _definitely_ had the (BR92134) problem of having
to associate a file with an application time and again.
New file association are not honoured by the system, but not in all cases.
In my case I had it with trying to make a file open with kaffeine by default.

I think I may have caused the mentioned .html problem myself by using
"open file with" and then selecting kwrite for css and xml and also doing
something like this for other file extensions.

Now Konqueror also doesn't open the .xml help files of my mambo
CMS. So I have to use Mozilla for that...

I can see a css.desktop file in kde/share/minelnk/text

It says 
[Desktop Entry]

I'm a bit confused here...

Thanks for your reactions and any help with this...
