Bug Description

From the menu:
Settings -> Advanced -> URL Handlers
Currently it suggests:
Name:
Open Link in Opera
Command:
!opera -remote 'openURL(%s)'

Perhaps it should be pointing to:
Name:
Open in default browser
Command:
!gnome-www-browser %s

This opens a working fire fox.

Only checked dapper for this.

Exists on edgy too, but I'm not sure its a bug.

There is a 'default' URL handler ('Open link in browser') which opens the URL with gnome-www-browser by default.
