This is the most natural thing to suggest, I would be surprised if
there _were_not_ a way to make Firefox the default when installing via
the menu option.

Actually, I would vote to have it set up for a single desktop as
default. Those new to Kubuntu (generally, Windows users) will find it
less troublesome, and those who know that more desktops can be added
will know where to look.

As an RSIbreak user, I know that most of my users would _not_ appreciate this.
