If it is using the KDE registration, you can use kcontrol (control
center), and select KDE_Components -> Component_Chooser.  Another
possibility is that it is using the generic www-browser name which
goes through /etc/alternatives.  In that case you have to use
update-alternatives to change it.  The update-alternatives manpage has
information on that.
