This is what's called a list of mimetypes, and it's how the system knows what program to use to open what file extension. KDE has a brilliant mimetype editor in the system settings, called "file associations".

Need I mention at this point that rekonq is a rubbish piece of software?
sudo aptitude purge rekonq
Sure to the first, no to the second.
So what am I supposed to do here? Yanking rekonq seems obvious. It stinks. Do I also need to purge firefox and reinstall a decent version from synaptic and then reconfigure it?
