Finally some stuff solved :)
There is another option for setting a default web browser and email
client and a few other default application separate from file type
kcontrol (KDE Control Center) -> KDE Components -> Component Chooser ->
Web Browser -> Default Component - here pick the other option "in the
following browser" and NOT "the application based on content of the
URL". So pick the other option and manually add there a full path to
Firefox (ie /usr/bin/firefox).
Tricky! Also it is quite hidden. You cannot find it by a context search.
Shame on them!
I don't know the equivalent in KDE4 and if things improved.
