Hi Gene,

Looks like wine messed your default browser. I am not currently using KDE,

Kmenu > Configure Desktop > Advanced > File Assoc > Text > HTML.

> firefox

If these don't work, you can also try saving a HTML in a folder, right
clicking it to get in file's properties, and changing default application
that will handle that kind of file.
