Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: konqueror

I've configured my kubuntu intrepid beta to use firefox as my default
browser. I called ubuntu-bug and got a new tab in my already running
firefox. As the invoked second instance of the firefox application only
acted as a remote control, it should have returned immediately.
Nevertheless, ubuntu-bug remained running, even after I closed first the
bug report tab and then firefox itself. I can reproduce the issue
calling "kfmclient openURL https://bugs.launchpad.net/" on the command
line. As kfmclient employs two threads at this moment, I have a bit of
trouble debugging this. I still haven't figured out how to get
backtraces of all threads. I hope that apport managed to do so in this
report here. The console output reads thus:

kfmclient(13725) ClientApp::doIt: Creating ClientApp
kfmclient(13725) ClientApp::createNewWindow: Using external browser "!firefox"
