Based on what you said, I went on to testing these configurations. The option to open based on the contents opens Konqueror (at least for webpages) and passes the URL to it.

The "in the followin browser" option seems to work fine too, and allows me to choose the browser I want -- with one exception, which is the one I had been using: Firefox nightly builds. Tried chromium, arora, konqueror and iceweasel and all work fine.

I switching back to Iceweasel (usually my default browser, but since the FF4 nightlies began to stabilise I had changed to them).
