Here are a couple things you could check:

 - Do you have BROWSER set in your environment?
 - What is the output of "namei x-www-browser"?
$ namei x-www-browser
f: x-www-browser
 ? x-www-browser - No such file or directory (2)

If x-www-browser appears to point at conquerer, you'll want to do a:
  sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser
Did that. Choose /usr/bin/firefox

That didn't change the output of "namei x-www-browser" but it did fix the problem. Now I'm reading some man pages to figure out what the hell I just did.

Thanks so much!
