I was hoping somebody would answer this question because I have the same
one. I'm not using KDE, but the default Bluecurve (or whatever it's
called) also on Fedora Core I. This window manager provides me with a
menu item called Preferences->Preferred Applications, which allows me to
set the command I'd like to have used for launching an application from
Sounds like just what I'd want, huh? Except that Mozilla's default
behavior is to launch another instance of itself, rather than checking
to see if one is already running. In other words, you get the profile
manager, instead of a new window/tab like you wanted.
Some Googling found a script that would do the checking and do the right
thing, but I haven't been able to get it to work and haven't had the
energy to figure out what's going wrong.
As an aside let me say that this is one of those (fortunately fewer and
fewer) things that seem so blindingly obvious that it's mind-boggling
that Mozilla still does this.
Please keep us posted if you come up with something.
