"system, preferences, preferred applications" from the panel menu,
that's the capplet you use to select the default browser for GNOME. The
GNOME applications do not use sensible browser, they use that setting
(which is stored to gconf "/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/command"

Again, sensible-browser is not a "desktop setting" and the GNOME default
is not changed without asking you
