Bug Description

Kubuntu 11.10
tomboy 1.8.0-lubuntu1
I expected the browser to open up so I can finish setting up the sync installation with Ubuntu One when I click on the Connect to Server button.
Instead I get the error message.

Hey, I had the same problem with Kubuntu 11.10 and firefox. It wouldn't kept saying "set default browser and try again" when firefox was set as the default browser.

So I went ahead and installed Chrome (actuall chrome, not the chromium package, but I don't know if it matters) and clicked "set as default browser" when it came up and tried it again.
Chrome took me to the UbuntuOne login and synching worked! Hooray! :)
