[ILUG] KDE file associations, more evil than MS?

I'm trying to use Mozilla as my default web browser and image viewer for KDE
rather than Konqueror and Image Viewer. I've gone into the control centre and
moved Mozilla up to the top of the list of apps for image/gif an text/html.
What happens now is that when I click on a link in KMail, it downloads the
page to a temporary file and opens that up in Mozilla, which is crap
basically. How can I get it to pass the URL to Mozilla?
The other problem is that it doesn't open a new window, it just overwrites
one of the current ones, is there a way of specifying how the external
program should be invoked ala mailcap or pretty much anything else that
spawns external apps? When you're adding a new app to the list, all you can
do is pick the exe.
It seems to me that the KDE folks have done a better job of tying the browser
to their desktop and apps than MS ever did!
