    Default [SOLVED] Hyperlinks broken, not calling the web browser [Linux version]

    I upgraded from F14 to 16 and now none the hyperlinks call the browser up.
    I installed the newest version 7.1.2. after I upgraded.
    I'm assuming that application preferences is where you set this but there is nothing listed

    Default Solved

    Reinstalled ZD
    When I clicked on a hyperlink it asked what application to use to open the link in my case it's google chrome.
    Pointed it to /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome

    bingo!

    Does anyone know if the default browser preferences can be modified at a later time without re-installation of ZD?

    It depends which versions of linux is in use. If you use Ubuntu, this will probably do it:

    You could modify this search to add the name of your favourite distribution:

    Thanks but still does not work for me. For some reason, it is not opening up my default browser which I assigned as Chrome via command line from the link you provided, and from GUI (system settings --> system info --> default applications --> web ). I suspect the issue is beyond ZD perhaps my linux GUI profile is fubar'd
    -----------
    was: ZD 7.1.2 Build 10978 on Ubuntu 11.10 32-bit
    then upgraded to: 7.1.4 Build 11273 on Ubuntu 11.10 (03/19/2012)
    then upgraded to: 7.1.4 GA Build 11299 on Ubuntu 11.10 (04/16/2012)
    Now officially migrated from ZD 7.1.4 GA Build 11299 to Thunderbird 11.0.1
